This Familia Kitchen Abuela 101 spotlights a Mexican essential dipping and cooking sauce: salsa verde. This is the favorite family recipe of one of our go-to (and youngest) abuela cocineras, Anjie Villalobos, uses tomatillos and a combination of serrano and/or jalapeños chiles. This fragrant green sauce goes with just about everything, deliciously.
Anjie Villalobos has three grandchildren who live near her in southern California and love spending time with her in the kitchen. Salsa with her homemade chips are among their very favorite things to eat at her house.
Count on salsa verde to add a welcome touch of heat and bright velvety flavor to your platos favoritos—like Anjie’s recipe for green chile chicken pozole, her family’s legendary New Mexican sweet chile rellenos, and, of course, tacos, enchiladas y mucho más.
For more of Anjie’s go-to Mexican and southwestern U.S. family-famous recipes, check out her Mexican frijoles de olla or refried beans, her family-famous guacamole, her tortilla soup, her family-famous green chile chicken pozole, and garlicky shrimp tacos—all served with her handmade corn tortillas (see how to make them set-by-step).
