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!

    Hi, Ashely, I was one of your nurses when Sawyer was born, then I “visited” you when Stevie entered the picture. We just got back from Riviera Maya, and visited Playa del Carmen. We had SUCH an amazing time, me, my husband, and 15 and 18 yr old daughters!!! We want to go back asap!! Stevie is such the feminine version of your handsome boys!!! I love following you and your adorable family, and I am so glad you started posting again 🙂
    Much love to you!!!

        Hi, Ashley, so sorry but just seeing this…. we stayed at the Hard Rock in Riviera Maya. Everything about our stay was positively magical, from the pyramids to the cenotes, and everything in between. I just celebrated 15 yrs at Los Robles….. and meeting people like you and your adorable family is one of the main reasons I love my job!
