Grandma’s Authentic Tomatillo Salsa Recipe


This is Grandma Michelle. She’s my Momma. And she lives in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We had the chance to visit her twice this year and both experiences have been magical (more on those visits in a future post, stay tuned).  In the last year and a half that she has lived in Mexico, she has spent time learning to make authentic Mexican dishes from scratch. And there’s nothing I love more than authentic Mexican food.

Her salsa is NEXT level! Today I’m sharing her fresh tomatillo salsa recipe. I LOVE a good green salsa!
