Tomatillo and Hatch Pepper Salsa

Tammy Brownlow


When you are blessed with a bumper crop or find veggies on sale, you eat all you can, share what you can, and freeze the rest! In the summer I use a toaster oven to roast the veggies as to not heat up the house. Every pepper has it's own distinct flavor and kick. Hatch peppers give the salsa a nice kick without as much heat as serranos. I hope you enjoy it!
