Salsa verde is our favorite salsa and one of our all time favorite snacks. It is made from tomatillos which look like small green tomatoes with a husk on them. They need some preparation before you use them.
First, remove the husk and rinse them off.
Next, cut them in half and put them in a bowl.
Put the bowl in the microwave and heat
on full power for 2-3 minutes until soft.
Cool before making into salsa.
Their are no preservatives in home made salsa. Refrigerate after you make it, and when you're not serving it. Make only as much as you will use in a day or two. If you like spicier salsa, add more peppers. The blend of jalapeno, anaheim, and banana peppers gives a full flavor and the heat sort of sneaks up on you while you are enjoying the salsa. Feel free to substitute other types of peppers based on preference and availability.
