“Dare to deviate from tomato salsa and try this tomatillo-based version for a deliciously addictive change of pace. It’s fantastic on its own with tortilla chips or served as a condiment alongside a variety of meats." —Lori Kostecki, Wausau, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2014

"I didn't have any ripe tomatoes or jalapenos so, I added a can of tomatoes with green chilis (drained). I also added a little extra garlic. It is delicious & I'm sure it will taste even better tomorrow after the flavors have more time to combine! Next time I will add more tomatillos."

"I have been making this recipe for several years.A Latino friend gave me this recipe. The only thing I do different is I grill all the veggies and use 2 tomatoes. All my family and friends ask for this at all our gatherings.Very,Very good."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 6, 2011

"I made this recipe several times this summer and have eaten it fresh and put some in the freezer for future use. I just found some tomatilloes at the farmers market and plan to make more so I will have it throughout the winter. It is very easy to make. Lori, I think the cooking of the tomatilloes just softens them a bit. It still tastes like a fresh salsa because of the other ingredients."
