Learn how to make homemade salsa verde. It is simple and easy and the perfect sauce for everything!
Last week I tried my hand at making homemade salsa verde. Oh my gosh, y'all! It was SO easy and so yummy. I could eat this stuff on everything. It especially tastes good on burritos, tacos, enchiladas.
Salsa verde is my go-to sauce for my freezer breakfast burritos and tostadas. It really makes the sausage pop and the crunch of the tortilla along with the acidic taste of the Verde sauce — hmm, hmmm — you will be asking for more!
It's really easy to fix and costs less than the jarred stuff and tastes so much better.
I also love the fact that it freezes so well. When I made this batch, I threw about a cup each into several storage bags and now, when I need some sauce, I just head to the freezer and pull it out to thaw.
How to Make Homemade Salsa Verde
This recipe is so easy. You boil your tomatillos for about 3 minutes and then everything goes into a blender and that is it.
Like I said, it is the easiest recipe you will ever make.
Of course, if you want the sauce to have a more deep roasted flavor, simply take all of your ingredients and roast them in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes. You will get a deliciously charred flavor.
