Green Chile Tomatillo Salsa

Salsa made with Tomatillo and Green Chile #recipe @MJsKitchen

 

Just in case you are looking for a little different salsa or pico de gallo, here is a recipe for Tomatillo Salsa with New Mexico green chile.  The chile adds a different flavor than other chile peppers like jalapeno, and you still get the heat that you want in a salsa.  Of course, if you don’t have any green chile, you can always substitute with another type of chile.  See the Kitchen Notes for some substitutions.
