Native to Mexico, this nightshade resembles a small, unripe tomato. Enclosed in their paper-like husk, they develop into a green, yellow, red, or purple fruit. Whether eaten raw, roasted, or made into salsa, they're delicious and sure to please!
Charred bits of onion and the last corn of summer are blended with blistered tomatillos for this tangy salsa. I was conservative on the amount of heat -- add more hot chilies "as desired" and you'll do fine.
Tomatillos, housed in tiny husks, make a great salsa verde. Using cumin and spanish paprika, and thai chiles, learn how to can a salsa verde that will be a great accompaniment to any Mexican dish or alone with some tortilla chips!
