I am so excited the weekend is here.  Fall is starting to filter in, baseball playoffs are getting exciting and football is what the weekends are all about.  To make this weekend something to remember you have to try this Roasted Salsa Verde.  

Green is better (in my opinion)

My favorite salsa has always been a green salsa.  I love the hint of tang the tomatillos bring with a little heat and freshness of lime in each bite.  

I judge Mexican food restaurants by their green sauce.  If I want to pour it all over anything and everything then it is a good restaurant.

 

Roasting is the key

As I was getting ready to try my hand at making my own salsa I was doing some research and determined that I wanted to try a roasted salsa and a fresh salsa to which I liked best.  Now the fresh salsa was delicious and we did eat it, but the roasted was AMAZING.  

Once roasted the tomatillos have a more complex and full flavor making this salsa some of the best I have ever had.  I also roasted the jalapeños, onions and some poblano peppers just for another layer of flavor.  When everything comes together it really does make for a salsa everyone will love.

THE BEST EVER…

Good on EVERYTHING 

When I made the salsa the first time I used it on my Pork Carnitas.  It would also be great as a dip on its own, on tacos, nachos, enchiladas or eggs in the morning.  

Stay tuned for this salsa verde in my sour cream chicken enchiladas coming very soon!
