Salsa Verde Pueblera Recipe by Paula Deen

Level: Easy


1 ratings


  • 1 1/2 lbs tomatillos, husks removed
  • 1 serrano chile, more or less, optional
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • queso fresco, or Cotija cheese, grated, optional


Rinse the tomatillos under cold water. Put them in a pot and cover them with water. Bring to a boil, over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered, until their color has changed and they are cooked and soft but not falling apart, about 10 minutes.

Add the tomatillos to a blender along with the chile, the garlic clove and a teaspoon of salt. Puree until smooth. Stir in the chopped cilantro and onion. Taste for salt and add more, if necessary. Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with cheese, if desired.
