In our house we have a tradition of having Mexican food every Tuesday night for dinner. Kind of our own Taco Tuesday! Salsa is always on the list, and Salsa Verde with its delicious tart citrus-like hint from the tomatillos, is quite a hit! I always make enough to have with tortilla chips before dinner’s ready, with plenty for big spoonfuls on top of the carnitas we’re probably having! The ingredients are few and so easy to find. The best part about making your own salsa is, not only the homemade part, but YOU get to choose the level of heat! I often make a little batch just for me with a little extra kick that my family can’t handle!
When I was first married, and before I realized that my food processor was “my friend,” I used to finely dice all the ingredients with my sharpest knife. It worked just as well, but now, with the anxious faces and growling stomachs waiting nearby my trusty food processor (or blender) makes it quick and easy! If by chance there’s any salsa verde leftover, try some on eggs in the morning for your own “desayuno”! You’ll be hooked! ¡Deliciosa!
