Tomatillo Salsa

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Papagayita

This is the first tomatillo recipe I've found that replicates the delicious salsa verde you get at Taco Cabana. And its pretty easy. All of the ingredients can be adjusted to taste.

Really good salsa. Very different from the salsa I usually make. I used two big jalapenos and it turned out super hot. But the flavor was nice and fresh. Thanks for posting.
