It’s all about the sauce.  Salsa Verde is made with tomatillos, the small green Mexican tomatoes.  A taco includes a corn tortilla, some meat or beans, some avocado, a little cheese, and Salsa.  It can be red or green Salsa.  It can be hot or mild.  But hot is good!

Use about 5 tomatillos  Take the outer husk off and simmer in water for about 15-20 minutes.  Cool.

I cooked up some pork loin chops and cut into strips.  You could use chicken, beef, lamb, or beans.

Heat your tortillas

Assemble

I put a little queso fresco on top.  If you can’t find queso fresco, a creamy feta would work.

Eat!

  1. Oh that looks so good! Just a couple of weeks ago my parents and I were reminiscing about the delicious food in Mexico! I still haven’t been back since we moved away (a looong time ago), but I would love to. Thanks for posting the recipe and have a great easter weekend!
