Sweet and spicy roasted tomatillo salsa, made with roasted green and jalapeno peppers, garlic, sugar, and lime. Perfect for parties, or just for snacking on.
There is a restaurant near where we live that I cannot get enough of — it’s called Milagros, and it’s honestly some of the best Mexican food around. Everything is fresh and homemade, and you can tell they use only the highest quality ingredients. However, the real reason I go is for the salsa. It is SO good. They give you two kinds — a red kind, and a green kind. Both are good, but the tomatillo salsa is my favorite. If I could afford it, I would go there all the time. Just for the salsa.
However, I can’t, so I became determined to make a salsa that tasted just like Milagros. So, last time we went, I asked our waiter what was in it. He told me that it had tomatillos and green peppers, and that the green peppers were roasted. I figured there must have been a jalapeno in there somewhere, since there was a decent kick to it.
After a little trial and error, I believe I found the perfect copy cat recipe of Milagros’ Tomatillo Salsa. It has the perfect amount of sweet and spicy. However, if you don’t like it being spicy, leave out the jalapeno (but definitely cut down the sugar), or if you want it less sweet, just add less sugar. The key to this salsa is roasting the tomatillos, the jalapenos, and the green pepper. Don’t skip this step! I definitely will be making this salsa a lot more from now on!
