Being a huge fan and lover of Mexican cuisine, I’ve always been fascinated with the numerous amount of salsas that are served along with appetizers and entrees at Mexican restaurants. Tomatillo salsa (salsa verde) has always been one of my favorites because of its rich texture and its ability to make anything it is added to extremely creamy! This automatically lessens the amount of sour cream and cheese that needs to be consumed since tomatillo salsa easily adds a punch to your food and leaves a pleasant taste behind.

Tomatillo salsa is remarkably easy to make and it’ll leave other people wondering how you made something so tasty in such a small amount of time!
