Tips for the Best Salsa Verde Dip:
- Try to buy tomatillos of roughly the same size so they cook evenly in the oven.
- Stir in a few tablespoons of water to thin the salsa otherwise, it will be too thick.
- Don’t over-process the salsa verde. You want it to be slightly chunky for the best texture. No pureeing here.
How To Make Homemade Salsa Verde Dipping Sauce Recipe With Step By Step Instructions:
- Tomatillos (1 Ib)
- Jalapeno Or Serrano Peppers ( 1 to 4 to taste)

- Broil for 8-12 minutes or until the tomatillos are juicy and bursting and the peppers are starting to blacken in places.

- Remove the papery skins from the garlic, and the stems from the peppers.
- Also, remove the seeds and membrane from some or all of the peppers if you want less spicy salsa.
- Add both to a food processor along with the cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and juice from 1 lime.
