My Super Easy, Super Delicious Salsa Verde

My Super Easy, Super Delicious Salsa Verde

Posted by LeAnn Kurtz on

Salsa Verde is an authentic Mexican Salsa that adds flavor and zest to any dish. Use it on enchiladas or as a dip and I promise you, everyone will love it!
This recipe made about 4 pint size jars of salsa that I canned. If you want less, it's ok to cut the recipe in half.I use 6 fresh Jalapenos because I like it hot! If you want it milder, use whatever tastes good to you.
Salsa Verde
I find tomatillos the easiest thing to grow of any vegetable. They re-seed themselves and grow like weeds all over our yard and garden!


  • 2-3 pounds of tomatillos, husked
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 whole onion, cut into about 8 pieces
  • 1-6 Jalapenos, or chiles of your choice
  • About a handful (you choice again) of fresh cilantro
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
  • 2 cups water


  1. Place tomatillos, onion, garlic, and chile peppers into a saucepan. Season with  oregano, cumin, and salt; pour in water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the tomatillos are soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add the Cilantro and Lime juice after cooking. I use an immersion blender because it's easier. If you don't have one, use a regular blender or food processor and blend in smaller batches.until it's smooth.

  • Having planted tomatillos for the first time ever in our garden, we had no idea what we were going to do with them once harvested. Friends had grown them in the past and often talked about how abundant they are and how delicious they are in homemade salsas so we thought we’d take a shot and grow some.

    Our first harvest happened the day we found your Super Easy Super Delicious Salsa Verde and we have to let you know we were blown away! Talk about easy… and the flavor was a home run! You made it so easy for us to follow and helped transform our fresh garden tomatillos, jalapenos, cilantro and oregano into a salsa verde that we’re putting on everything! (A favorite is in the morning on an english muffin with a soft boiled egg.)

    Thanks for sharing!
