Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

The salsa I promise you will want to put on everything.

I don’t know about you guys but half the time I go out for Mexican food, I really just want the chips and salsa. I could make a whole meal out of it to be honest. So making salsa home is one of my favorite things to do. I also love having fresh salsa in the fridge in case you have any guests pop over and need something quick to put out, nothing beats fresh chips and salsa.

Fresh salsa typically stays good in the fridge for a week, as long as its in a sealed container.

I love red salsa, but I think my favorite home made salsa is a green salsa, its so vibrant and fresh and then roasting it elevates the flavors even more.

  • Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

9 Tomatillos

1 jalapeno

1/2 white onion

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 lime zest

1 lime juiced

1 bunch cilantro- just the leafs

Olive oil




Step 1: Turn the oven on broil and let it heat up for a couple minutes, while the oven heats up, dice your veggies.

Step 2: Unwrap your tomatillos and cut them in half. Roughly chop half your onion. Cut your jalapeño in half. I leave the seeds and the membrane in because I like the spice, but if you don’t, you can simply scrape those out. On a non stick baking sheet, seed side down, place your tomatillos on one side, then spread on your onion and jalapeños on the other. Lightly drizzle olive oil over top and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 3  Broil for 6 – 8 minutes until everything gets a nice char. Broil on every oven is different so check around minute 6 and then keep the light on in the oven to see after that because they can burn quickly.

Step 4: Take the pan out of the oven and let things cool for 10 minutes

Step 5: In a food processor or blender add the veggies, and pulse for 1 minute. Add your lime zest, lime juice, spices and cilantro, and blend for 3 minutes.

Step 6: Serve with your favorite chips and some extra lime wedges on the side so people can spritz a little more if they would like on their own serving. Lime juice will also help calm the spice.

Step 7: Enjoy!!

This salsa goes great with chips, but even better with my Roasted Poblano Chile, Corn and Zucchini Quesadilla.

love, becca
