How hot is your salsa???



Tomatillos have a tangy, citrus like flavor. In addition to being related to the tomato, they are also related to the ground cherry, which they look like. Like the ground cherry, they can be eaten raw, but are usually cooked, which brings out the best flavor. They are principally used in Mexican salsas, either taking the place of tomatoes or occasionally being used in combination with tomatoes. Salsa verde, or green salsa, usually gets its green color from the use of tomatillos.
