Now who doesn’t like a good salsa? From mild to Hot. From Chunky to Smooth. We all have our favorite kind of salsa. As you can imagine, most salsas are tomato based. That’s all fine and dandy but I wanted to try something a little different.

A few years back I made a Guy Fieri dish that had tomatillo sauce. It was awesome! So I decided to play around with his original recipe and this is what I came up with.


How to Make this Recipe


Drain and chop tomatillos. Set aside.


In a saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Place the tomatillos, jalapeños, onion and red bell pepper in the pan and cook until mixture softened and becomes fragrant - Approximately 7 to 10 minutes..


Place the tomatillos mixture in a food processor (or you can use a blending stick). Add the garlic and process until you reach the desired consistency.


Stir in the chopped cilantro, green onions and cayenne.


Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Chef's Notes

I recommend wearing disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers. Avoid touching your face.

This salsa is so fantastic. I literally couldn’t stop eating with tortilla chips. It’s pretty easy and quick to make too. Way better than a store bought salsa.

We would LOVE to hear from you!
