Tomatillo Green Sauce

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star No reviews


Roasted Tomatillos, Jalapenos, and Onions make this sauce extra special!  It has the perfect amount of spice and the texture is perfect.


  • 4 tomatillos
  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1 shallot
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Mayo
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


1. Take the skin off of the tomatillos then add to a small tray with the jalapeños, shallot, and garlic. Broil for 3 min. Remove the garlic then flip everything and broil for another 3 min.

2. Remove the skin of the jalapeños and seeds if you don’t want the sauce to spicy. Chop everything up and add to the blender with the rest of the listed ingredients. I like to blend everything without the cilantro first then add the cilantro and blend again until smooth. This thickens up in the fridge when you let it sit in there for a few hours or overnight. Hope you enjoy!


Store in a air tight container. This sauce holds in the fridge nicely for 4 days.

I also like to use this as a salad dressing.
