Simple Salsa Verde


This simple salsa verde recipe will have your family and guest begging for more. This salsa is a staple in my house and it is so easy to make. In 15 minutes you will have delicious and healthy salsa!

Here is what you will need:

4-5 Medium tomatillos, husked
2-3 Jalapenos with stems cut off
1 Habanero pepper with stem cut off (Optional for an extra kick ;))
1/4 Cup of Cilantro, roughly chopped
1 Garlic clove
1/4 Cup of onions, chopped very fine


Heat oil a large skill over medium-high heat

Cut the tomatillos in half

Place tomatillos, habanero and whole jalapenos on the skillet and roast for 5 minutes. Then turn all ingredients over and roast the other side for 5 minutes. If your tomatillos are large you may need to roast them for more time. You know they are ready when the tomatillos start to shrivel. You will also see some browning or what looks like “burn” spots. Don’t worry… that is what you want to see!

Place the tomatillos, habanero, jalapenos and garlic clove in an blender or food processor and process using the course puree option. (If you are using a Nutribullet, blend it for about 5 seconds)

Pour contents into a jar or serving bowl and add in finely chopped onions and cilantro. Mix well and prepare for a mouthful of flavor!


All of the ingredients uses were either from my garden or from local organic farmers. It is so fresh but still has a nice spicy kick! Try it out and let me know what you think!

Much Love!

  1. I’m so excited to try this salsa. How can I make this as “mild” as possible but still get close enough to the same flavor?
