5 Minute Salsa Verde

5 Minute Salsa Verde

After several year’s absence, I have volunteer tomatillos this year, and the plants are loaded. In case you aren’t familiar with these, Wikipedia tells us, “The tomatillo, also known as the Mexican husk tomato, is a plant of the nightshade family bearing small, spherical and green or green-purple fruit of the same name. Tomatillos originated in Mexico and were cultivated in the pre-Columbian era.”

My favorite thing to do when I have a bounty of them is to make some yummy salsa verde. Here’s my recipe:


About 20 Tomatillos

½ White onion (I only had a red onion, so I cheated and used it.)

3-5 Cloves garlic, to taste

Lots of cilantro, if you love it like me. Optional

3-5  green chilies, to taste

1 lime, juiced

Salt and pepper to taste

2 teaspoons Oregano

1 Tablespoon Cumin (My secret ingredient!)


Place everything in the food processor and process for 2-3 minutes, or until desired consistency. Remove from processor and break out the chips! This is good with anything that any kind of salsa  with eaten with, such as Mexican food, and over eggs.
