Fiery Green Salsa

Fiery Green Salsa

Serve this refreshing salsa with my Tacos with Tequila Lime Chicken.


2 cups tomatillos, chopped (fresh or canned)
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup minced red onion
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


If you are using fresh tomatillos, peel them. Place them directly over the gas flame, on a charcoal grill, or in a heavy dry skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until blackened all over, 5 to 8 minutes. Chop the fresh or canned tomatillos.

In a bowl, stir together the tomatillos, cilantro, red onion, lime juice, and serrano.

Season with salt and pepper.
