Easy Tomatillo Salsa
I cannot say enough about this recipe. This is my go to for the winter time. I always either have a batch whipped up in my fridge (lasts 2 weeks!) or have the ingredients sitting in the pantry. It is just so easy. Once you’ve made it a couple of times, you want to play with it and so sometimes I will add pineapple or avocado. The combinations are really endless and so cheap to make.
The reason why I can make this in the winter time is because they sell canned tomatillos (so excited!). You can find them in the Mexican aisle at your grocery store or the “international” aisle as one of my grocery stores around here likes to call it. The brand I use the most is GOYA or La Costena. They comes in a big can, about 28 ounces. Then the next item I usually always have in my pantry are diced jalapenos. These come in a small cans of 4 ounces. If you don’t like a lot of heat, get the diced chiles instead. The rest of the ingredients include onion, garlic powder, fresh cilantro, salt, agave syrup, and apple cider vinegar.
Take all of your ingredients and toss them into the food processor or blender and mix until you reach the consistency you want. I usually like mine the consistency of what you would get at a Mexican restaurant, so blended very well.
Make this anytime you are craving a delicious batch of salsa, so good!Print

- 1–28 oz can of Tomatillos (I use GOYA brand or LaCostena)
- 1–4 oz can of diced jalapenos
- 1/4 of a white onion
- lime juice (half of a lime or about 1 tablespoon)
- 1 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/2 cup of cilantro (about a third of a bunch)
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 2 tsp of agave nectar
- 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
Take all ingredients and place in a food processor and mix until desired consistency.
If you don’t have any fresh ingredients you can substitute the fresh lime with bottled lime juice, the onion with onion powder (1/2 teaspoon), and the cilantro with cilantro flakes (about 2 tablespoons). Be careful not to add too much or the salsa will have a weird aftertaste.
