How to Make Salsa Verde - Green Taco Sauce


  1. Gather your ingredients. Wash the Tomatllos and Jalapeno throughly.
  2. Cut the Jalapeno in half and de-seed and de-vein it. Boil in a pan for approx. 7 min until soft. Remove and put it on a baking sheet.
  3. Put the Tomatillos, Garlic with Peel On, Onion with skin on, & Bellpepper, next to the jalapeno on the baking sheet.
  4. Turn the oven on broil and place the baking sheet on the middle rack. Cook all the ingredients until they have a nice char turning the tomatillos over to char all sides. The tomatillos are done when they are starting to lighten and turn a slight yellow color. Take out each ingredient as it gets done roasting. Don't burn the garlic.
  5. Smash the garlic to a paste in a small bowl then add to the blender with the rest of the roasted items. Peel the skins off the tomatillos when they are finished charring then add to the blender.
  6. Mince in the blender with pulses until it is thick like a salsa. Add the salt, cumin, to taste, and cilantro, and then the vinegar. Pulses a few times. *Note if you want this like a Green Taco Sauce you can strain the seeds from the tomatillos and omit cilantro.
  7. Serve and Enjoy!
