Roasted Tomatillo Salsa


Roasted Tomatillo salsa sounds so gourmet and it’s tastes gourmet too. No one has to know how truly easy this salsa is to make. Actually, it’s probably the easiest salsa to make and goes so perfectly with tacos. The key is to find good tomatillos. A tomatillo looks like a green tomato covered in a greenish/yellow papery husk and if you can’t find them at your grocer, try a latin food store. Peek inside the husk to make sure the tomatillo is firm and bright green.  Now you are ready to make your own roasted tomatillo salsa…

Here’s what they look like.    image credit: cookstr
