Tomatillo Salsa is smoky, spicy and sweet. This fresh Tomatillo Salsa is a super easy and quick to make. Tomatillo Salsa is a combination of tomatillos, chilies and cilantro creates a salsa with authentic Mexican flavor. Tomatillo Salsa is my favorite salsa, hands down, and that's coming from someone who loves salsa. You can throw all ingredients together in a blender and your Tomatillo Salsa is ready in a minute.
