Easy Homemade Salsa Verde uses six simple ingredients to create a sweet salsa verde. Fresh tomatillos are blended together with onion, garlic, cilantro and lime juice for the perfect salsa for dipping or topping on tacos. 



  • 8 medium tomatillos, husked, rinsed and quartered {about 1 pound}
  • 2 jalapeños, rinsed, sliced and seeded {optional for heat}
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoons lime juice {more to taste}
  • Salt to taste


  1. Put the tomatillos in a food processor and blend for 10 seconds to begin to break them up.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until liquified.
  3. Taste the salsa and if it is too spicy add more lime juice to taste as well as additional salt to taste.
  4. Serve with fresh tortilla chips or on Mexican Dishes or put in a sealed container and keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.


When picking tomatillos go for the lighter green to yellow ones as they are sweeter than dark ones.
