I learned this recipe when I was in Zihuatanejo in Mexico. We had an amazing chef, Herminia, and she would cook breakfast & lunch everyday during our stay. I was so obsessed with her salsa verde and wanted to learn how to cook it. She spoke very little English, but good thing I can understand Spanish (but can't speak :/) Anyways, I would love to share this recipe with y'all! Keep in mind that you could adjust the recipe to your tasting. Enjoy 🙂
1 Clove of Garlic
1/4 cup of Cilantro
Salt & Pepper to taste
I like to keep it a 1:1 ratio with the tomatillos and jalapenos. But I'll add extra jalapeno or sneak in a habanero if I want it crazy spicy. This recipe can be adjusted! Trial and error. 🙂
Step 1. Fill your pot with water and bring to a boil. Cut the tomatillos and jalapenos into 1/3. Place into boiling pot and bring to a medium heat - let it boil for 10 min.
Step 2. Once you finished boiling, keep 1/4 cup of the water. Take out the tomatillos and jalapenos and add to the blender. Add in the clove of garlic, salt and pepper, cilantro, squeeze lime juice, and 1/4 of the water chili juices. Then blend.
And that's pretty much all there is to it. You could definitely adjust the recipe to your liking. If you prefer your salsa being spicy, add more peppers and keep the seeds in there. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! We put this on pretty much everything we eat. Thanks Herminia!!!
