Salsa Verde

Authentic Cinco de Mayo Celebration green chalupa

This salsa verde, made with tomatillos, is great on homemade chalupas, tacos, and burritos or can be served on chips.




  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F. Peel the outer layer {it looks like paper leaves} off your tomatillos, and sliced them in half.
  2. Place the tomatillo halves, whole poblano, half an onion, and four peeled garlic cloves on a cookie sheet. Coat each in olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the top off the stem from the poblano, and place it along with the onion, garlic, and tomatillos in a blender. Also add the juice of one lime and chopped cilantro. Blend until it is almost smooth {it’s okay to have some texture}.
