If you like your salsa hot and sharp, you will enjoy this recipe for a fresh tomatillo salsa verde (green sauce). It is a very easy to make uncooked salsa. The uncooked tomatillos are quite acidic and when you add 4 serrano chiles, seeds and all, your salsa is gonna pack some punch. The flavor stands up well to grilled beef. We love this salsa with carne asada. It's also a great salsa for grilled chicken.
Blend the tomatillos, serrano chiles, garlic, water, and salt until smooth.
Pour the blended tomatillos into a serving bowl. Add the chopped onion and cilantro and stir.
Adjust the salt as needed.
Prefer a milder salsa?This is a very hot salsa. Use 2 serrano chiles or even 1 instead of 4 if you prefer a milder salsa.Let the Salsa RestIf you have the time allow the salsa to rest for 30 minutes so that the flavors meld.
