Blender Tomatillo Salsa

Blender tomatillo salsa - this is the most epic green salsa out there. I make it fresh about every 3-4 weeks or so and a full jar usually only lasts about 4-5 days in our house. It's great on tacos, especially these sweet potato tacos! Also, it's great on eggs or even plain with chips. No cooking requited, just some quick blitzing in the blender. Okay, let's salsa up!

  • 28 ounce can of tomatillos
  • 1/2 a white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1 serrano pepper
  • splash of white vinegar
  • salt to taste


  • First, open your can of tomatillos and use a slotted spoon to get them out. You don’t want any of the can juice, yet you want all the juice that’s inside of the tomatillo.
  • Then, wash and pat dry the cilantro. Put everything into the blender, tomatillos first.
  • Blend until well mixed and just slightly chunky. Taste then add more salt if needed.
  • It’s so fresh and so green. We love it! The pectin in the tomatillos will release as it sits in the jar in the fridge overnight, yet just be sure to give it a good stir before you use it.
  • Pour into the jar and chill for at least 4 hours – it’s best when served cold.
