There's no green salsa that you can make faster than this. Fast as it is, it's delicous and very popular. Mexican salsas are quick, easy and a great addition to many of your non-Mexican food meals.

Tomatillos are like small size green tomatoes, and they come wrapped in a brown leaf-like covering. Sometimes a grocer removes the leaf-like covering before putting the tomatillos out for sale.


Ingredients: tomatillos, garlic, cilantro, and chili jalapeno.

Wash the vegetables well. Remove the leaf-like covering of the tomatillo before washing.
