Tomatillo Salsa

Oct 23, 2019 | Sides

This recipe won a local salsa contest and I have to say, it’s that good! But be warned—to get it right you almost ALWAYS have to make adjustments due to the ripeness of the tomatillos or the heat of the jalapeño. Sometimes you need to add more salt, other times, more sugar. There’s been times where the jalapeño must’ve been a dud because there was no heat at all. Then you have to mince up another jalapeño and add it in. The tomatillo salsa should float inbetween slightly sweet and medium heat. That’s the sweet spot. Enjoy!
