Salsa verde is one of my favorite salsas of all time. However, I find tomatillos a little tricky to work with. In my experience I’ve had many, many green salsas made with very acid tomatillos, I don’t like that. Some people add sugar to mellow the acid taste of tomatillos but I’d rather not do that so, I like adding zucchini to the green salsa, I think the zucchini tames the acid taste of the tomatillos and it makes it totally delicious, plus more veggies in, its a win!
So today I am making Pork with salsa verde and potatoes. This is a dish that my entire family loves, especially my 3year old, She’s a meat and potato girl. I normally add 1 or 2 jalapenos to the salsa but my kids are not big into spicy food yet, (I hope they will someday. I mean, they’re half Mexican half Texan after all) so I am leaving the peppers out for this recipe but you can totally add them to the salsa if you want to give it a little kick.
Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
