Tomatillo Salsa Verde

  • by

With all the mexican food trucks and taco stands out here in the southwest, I’ve become hooked on salsa verde.  During the summer it’s a fresh change to normal red tomato salsa and it goes great on tacos/burritos or nachos. Plus, it’s quick nd healthy for you, so eat up!
