Salsa verde with pasilla

Salsa verde with pasilla

This common Mexican salsa usually goes with fatty meats like pork. It adds a lovely sourness to fish and seafood as well.

You can also make a raw version of this salsa. However, it must be eaten the same day. Cooked, it keeps for a few days in the fridge.

Makes about 1 cup of salsa. 


6 to 8 tomatillos

4 cloves garlic

1 Pasilla de Oaxaca or fresh Serranos

Salt to taste

Fresh cilantro (opt.)

    Remove husk from tomatillos and wash well. Place in a small pot and cover with water. Add a little salt.

  2. 2

    Bring to a boil and cook on medium for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.

  3. 3

    Meanwhile, grill garlic in a hot pan. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Cover Pasilla de Oaxaca with boiling water and let stand 15 minutes. If you’re using serrano, chop it finely.
