Salsa Verde; Tomatillos, jalapenos, serrano chilis, cilantro (coriander), onion, and garlic come together to create fireworks.
Many apologies for not turning the mic on. However, combine the tomatillos, jalapenos, serrano chilis, cilantro (coriander), onion, and garlic, in the boiling water and cook at high heat for 5 -15 minutes, until the tomatillos turn a dull green and the outer skin is soft. That’s it. LYMI.
