Top Rated Tomatillo Salsa Recipes

Traveling back to Oregon from Seattle on a Tuesday, my husband, Benjamin, and I pulled into a taco stand in central Washington. We had only $10 in cash and with that we ate our fill of tacos filled with the seared beef called carne asada. There is no secret marinade or ingredient for the habit-forming tacos sold at roadside stands and food carts: the beef is diced very fine, salted, and then browned on a griddle with onions and cilantro. You get a heaping tablespoon of scrumptious beef on top of two soft corn tortillas and a wedge of lime. It's up to you to flavor it with a great salsa like this smooth and tart avocado-tomatillo salsa. Be sure to offer bowls full of radishes, cucumbers, and pickled carrots to fill out the meal, which is especially easy and family-friendly for weeknights on the run.

If you haven’t noticed by now… I love one-pot cooking. Especially when the pan can go from the stove to the table! This meal came to me while I was walking around the produce department not knowing what to make for dinner and I spotted the tomatillo on sale! Immediately braised chicken came to me and created this delicious recipe. I hope you try my Braised Chicken with Tomatillo Salsa and it follows the Paleo diet and is gluten-free.

Fair warning: this salsa can be addictive! I first tasted it in Ixtapa, Mexico, and after that, I had to figure out how to make it myself at home. Fortunately it is actually a very simple salsa, and tastes so great with a bowl of tortilla chips and a nice cold beer on a sunny day. The creaminess of the avocados combined with the pop of spice from jalapeños and serranos make this salsa irresistible. Use this salsa to top tacos, gorditas, or sopes.

Shrimp Burrito with Tomatillo Salsa
Making a burrito isn't as labor-intensive as you think, especially because most of the ingredients can be bought ready-made at the store — salsa, guacamole, canned beans, and in this case, even cooked shrimp, if you're feeling particularly, ahem, lazy. But if you're going to make something from scratch here, I would insist on the salsa. You don't even need to chop anything for this one; just throw everything into a food processor and you'll have a fresher-tasting salsa than anything store-bought, with a balance of tanginess and heat that will make this burrito something special.

Chile-Honey-Glazed Salmon
At Mesa Grill in New York City, Bobby Flay serves his famous spicy-sweet salmon with three different sauces: roasted tomatillo salsa, chipotle-spiced black bean sauce (made from dried beans soaked overnight) and jalapeño crema, a Mexican sour cream. The bean sauce — canned black beans, chipotle, garlic, and other aromatics — comes together in just 20 minutes. Plain sour cream fills in for the crema, which can be hard to find.
