Here are 20 Tomatillo Recipes that are amazingly delicious and one hundred percent delectable.
This green fruit is used to make tangy, tart, and tantalizing dishes that will fulfill your culinary wishes.
Tomatillos are not green tomatoes. Even though the name in Spanish literally means “little tomatoes,” they are not baby tomatoes.
They are fruit (not a vegetable) from Mexico. Since they are easy to grow, farmers in the US started growing them.
You might also hear them referred to as “husk tomatoes” because they usually have a husk. In Mexico, you might also find them at grocery stores without the husks.
To the touch, they are sticky. Simply remove the husk and rinse before using.
Tasty Tomatillos Recipes
Don’t taste them. They are very acidic cooked or uncooked.
You can either roast them, boil them, even sauté them.
