Teresa’s Salsa Verde

Place the jalapenos and tomatillos in a saucepan. Add the water, bring to a boil and boil about 10 minutes over medium heat. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the ingredients cool 10 to 15 minutes.


Remove the stems from the jalapenos and place the jalapenos, tomatillos and garlic in a blender. Blend on high 3 to 4 seconds. If the salsa seems too thick, add a little of the cooking water. Add salt to taste.

As a variation, add chopped onion and cilantro after the salsa is blended.
