Weight Watcher friendly homemade Roasted Tomatillo Salsa made with roasted tomatillos & peppers. Delicious way to enjoy your favorite Mexican salsa at home!

 

How many times have you gone to a Mexican restaurant, stuffed your face with chips and dip, and thought “how do they make this amazing salsa”?!  Well my friends, I have thought this too many times to count so I decided to take matters into my own hands, and make my own salsa!  There are so many different types of salsa combinations, but one of my favorite salsas to make is my Roasted Tomatillo Salsa.  This is a Weight Watcher friendly recipe and it’s only 1 SmartPoint per serving.

 

This salsa is smokey, packed with fresh ingredients, and easy to make.  I really enjoy making this salsa and putting some on top of enchiladas or tostadas.  And of course, eating with chips and sipping a skinny margarita!  Roasted Tomatillo Salsa can stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, so you can make this on Sunday when you do meal prep to have it ready for a quick week night meal.  I like to make this on Sunday and use the salsa to add to fish tacos, or even salad.
