How to Make Salsa Verde - Green Taco Sauce


  • 1Gather your ingredients. Wash the Tomatllos and Jalapeno throughly.
  • 2Cut 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.
  • 3Put the Tomatillos, Garlic with Peel On, Onion with skin on, & Bellpepper, next to the jalapeno on the baking sheet.
  • 4Turn 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.
  • 5Smash 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.
  • 6Mince 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.
  • 7Serve and Enjoy!
