Tomatillos and how to use them.
Enchiladas con Salsa Verde
(Enchiladas with Green Sauce)
Salsa Verde is to Mexican cuisine what tomato sauce is to Italian food. Salsa verde is similar to red salsa, except that instead of using red
tomatoes, it uses the small green tomatillo.
The translation of this dish literally means Swiss Enchiladas. This is a
version of the signature dish at Samborn's Restaurant in Mexico City, the one in the Casa de Azulejos
(House of Tiles) in Mexico City's historic central district. Some people say it was created as a “tourist” type meal. Calling
the dish “Swiss” was a tribute to the large amount of cheese and cream, which is used in the recipe.

Mike’s Bachelor-Style Enchiladas
A very simple dish to make, however simple can be good, and these definitely are good. They are also quick,
easy, and don’t mess up every pot in the kitchen.
Pork Chile Verde
As soon as I took a bite, I was immediately reminded of a meal my best friend’s
mother used to always have stewing on the stove and referred to it as her peppers. We used to eat this with homemade tortillas enjoying the spicy
and comforting flavors. I just had to learn to make this meal, and spent an evening quizzing Jesse on all the steps to prepare this dish.
Roasted Chile Pepper & Tomatillo Salsa
Fiery hot salsa - for those you like salsa hot! So good and so addicting!
Salsa verde is to Mexican cuisine what
tomato sauce is to Italian food. Its most popular use is as a chip dip, but
also used as a sauce on meats.
Smokey Toasted Arbol (or Guajillo) Salsa
This is not your usual salsa. It is rusty red, very spicy, and perfect for
drizzling over tacos, eggs, or anything cooked on your grill.
Spicy Chicken and Tomatillo Soup
I created this delicious soup Mexican-style soup because I had too many tomatillos
in my garden. I figured there had to be something else to make with them other
than a salsa. I was right, make this wonderful soup for your family.
This recipe is courtesy of Betty Forner and Trey Forner of Vancouver, Washington. I first tasted this outstanding guacamole at
Louisiana Crawfish Boil.
This is kind of like a salsa verde, but with the addition of avocado. This salsa is so good
and very addictive!
Tomatillo and Cucumber Gazpacho Soup
I am a huge fan of Gazpacho soup in
the summertime which is a cold tomato-based raw vegetable soup. I also love
Salsa Verde and cucumbers, so I decided to change up the ingredients for
traditional gazpacho and make a tomatillo-cucumber version. I pureed the
tomatillo with some additional vegetables for a nice smooth texture that reminds
me of the flavors of Salsa Verde. I also diced up the rest of the vegetables to
add in, since I enjoy the crunchy texture of raw vegetables. This resulted in a
very tasty and refreshing summer soup to keep cool during the hot summer
evening. Top the soup with shrimp and fresh mozzarella cheese and you have a
nice light dinner. My husband gave this soup a big thumbs up!
