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.  Roasted tomatillos blended with cilantro, onion, jalapenos, and lime juice is easy to make, fresh, and perfect to dip chips into or on a taco!  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!  

 

Have you ever cooked with tomatillos before?  They might look a little weird, but they are packed with amazing flavor and great for any Mexican dish.  Tomatillos are usually by the tomatoes at your grocery story and come with a husk.  All you need to do is gently remove the husk and rinse off the tomatillos.

 

 

After the tomatillos have been rinsed, just slice them in half and lay them cut side down on a baking sheet.

   

 

 

Roast the tomatillos at 400 degrees for 35 minutes until the skin has slightly wrinkled up.

 

 

Add the roasted tomatillos, jalapeno, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper to a food processor (or blender).

 

 

Pulse until all ingredients are blended well.

 

 

This salsa is packed with fresh, delicious flavor and can stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  I like to make a big batch of this salsa on Sunday and have it on hand throughout the week to add to tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, eat with chips… I will eat this salsa with just about anything!
