Tomatillo Salsa Verde

The Herbeevore
This Tomatillo Salsa Verde is a bright, fresh, and spicy homemade green salsa that's easy to make in your blender with fresh tomatillos. This salsa verde contains no salt and is naturally low in sodium (but big on flavor)! Great to enjoy as a dip for fresh tortilla chips, to top your huevos rancheros, or to add into your next taco night.

  • Blender or Food Processor


  • 12 tomatillos husks removed
  • 1 sweet onion chopped divided
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 3 jalapenos or 6 smaller green Chiles
  • 1 bunch cilantro stems removed


  • In a medium sized pot, add the tomatillos, half the onion, half the garlic, the jalapenos to the pot. Pour in enough water to just cover the tomatillos. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes until the tomatillos are soft.
  • Strain the vegetables out of the pot and add to a blender. Save the cooking water in case you need to thin the salsa.
  • To the blender add all the cooked vegetables, and the remaining 1/2 chopped onion, the 3 cloves of garlic, and the fresh chopped cilantro.  Blend on low speed and work up to high speed so the salsa is completely blended. Thin with 1 tablespoon of the vegetable cooking water if desired.
  • Serve with fresh corn tortilla chips or enjoy on top of burritos, taco bowls, and beans and rice.
