One of the things I like to make the most are sauces. And that includes condiments like this Tomatillo Ketchup from Chef Rachael Ray.

My love for Tomatillos is no secret. I absolutely love my Spicy Tomatillo Salsa and my Turkey Tomatillo and Bean Burrito recipes.

The first thing you are probably wondering is why am I calling this a ketchup recipe since it has the consistency of salsa? Well because that is what Rachael calls it!

The next thing you are most likely wondering is what do I serve this tomatillo ketchup with? Well I originally saw this tomatillo ketchup recipe when she used it on one of her beef sliders recipes.

I figured if it’s good enough on a mini-burger, it can be used on regular burgers, hot dogs, or a dipping sauce for your french fries. Heck you can even eat it like salsa with some tortilla chips!
