Easy Peasy Cool & Breezy

IMG_0384I am the first to admit that I was never a fan of green salsa. In truth, I found the smell of tomatillos nauseating, the idea of eating them was just not appealing, and most prepared green salsas taste goopy and processed. Then I moved to Mexico. I’ve been experimenting with Mexican cuisine and one cannot escape tomatillos. Early on I decided to tackle chicken pozole, both red and green. I was blown away by how delicious, refreshing, and easy this tomatillo salsa, the base of my green pozole, was!

So now I will share my super-simple taste sensation with you.
