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.


Enchilada SuizaEnchilada Suizas
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.

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.

Tomatillo Gazpacho Soup
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!
