Try my low salt/low sugar recipe with your favorite baked chips and I know you'll enjoy it too!

How to Make Better For You Salsa Verde


  • 1Remove the husks from the tomatillos and rinse.

    for 7 minutes to roast and slightly blacken the skin. Roasting imparts a heartier flavor to the salsa than boiling.
