This tomato based Salsa Verde is so good, you just might want to eat it like soup!
  • 6 medium tomatillos (about 1.5 pounds) or equivalent orange/yellow or slightly unripe green tomato
  • ½ white onion (halved)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 chopped jalapenos (stem removed)
  • 1 cup pork carnita drippings (juice separate from fat & oil)
  1. Add pork drippings into sauce pan (if you don't have that much pork drippings, supplement with water).
  2. Add rest of ingredients to sauce pan, and bring to a boil, cooking until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Puree salsa with immersion blender.
  4. If the salsa verde is too watery, keep boiling until it has reduced to your desired consistency.
  5. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
