Here is my recipe for authentic Mexican salsa verde. This is a thinner sauce that you would use for making enchiladas or other prepared dishes. It's not a thick sauce for dipping chips. There are step-by-step preparation photos on my website. We make this one all the time.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 lb. tomatillos or green tomatoes
  • 1 white onion
  • 4 serrano chiles
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 12 sprigs cilantro
  • 2 tbsp. cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt + to taste

Instructions
  1. Remove the papery husks from the tomatillos and rinse to remove the sticky residue.
  2. Quarter the onion.
  3. Add all of the ingredients except the cilantro and salt to a large pot and just cover with water.
  4. Bring the water and ingredients to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Blend the cooked ingredients and the cilantro with the cooking water until smooth. (About 30 seconds)
  6. Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in the pot.
  7. Pour the blended salsa back into the pot with the hot cooking oil.
  8. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  9. Add the salt and adjust if necessary.

Hello, and welcome! thank you for sharing your recipe with us, and we are looking forward to more. Mexican and TexMex are two of my favourite foods, and I am always eager to learn more about them from folks who live there.
