Tomatillo Salsa Verde with Tortilla Chips and Cilantro

I love a good salsa verde!

Here in Texas there are probably a million and one jarred versions in local grocery stores but there’s something magical about homemade salsa verde.

Aside from being deliciously fresh, I also get to customize it exactly how I want it. For me, extra of mix-ins like cilantro, lime, and jalapeño are a must. I also like a little sprinkle of cumin in mine and some extra sea salt. YES PLEASE!

Luckily it’s positively easy to make and rather speedy too! It’s gotten to the point where I can’t walk past the tomatillos at the grocery store without grabbing some for salsa.

Salsa Verde Ingredients - Tomatillos, Onion, Jalapeno, and Cilantro

How to Make Salsa Verde

When it comes to making this gorgeous green salsa verde, you have two tasty cooking methods to choose from!

Boiling

Boiling your veggies leads to a supremely smooth salsa with a bright tomatillo flavor. I wouldn’t quite call it tart but there is a definite zippiness to the salsa that I really adore!

You’ll simply add your tomatillos, jalapeño, and onion to a medium pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes.

This method is the quickest and my go-to method for salsa verde.

Roasting

Roasting the tomatillos leads to a slightly sweeter salsa with a kiss of smokiness. It has a bit of a fire roasted vibe to it. You can play up the smoky flavor by adding some smoked paprika and even spice it up with extra jalapeño if you’d like!

To roast, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with foil. Add tomatillos, jalapeños and onion to the pan and roast for 15-20 minutes until the flesh of the tomatillos puckers a bit and the veggies have some dark char marks on them. For extra smokiness, feel free to flip the oven to broil for a minute or so to further develop the fire-roasted flavors.

After cooking your veggies, you’ll blend them up with the remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor and season to taste. Chill in the fridge or feel free to enjoy it room temperature as well!
