    If you like Mexican dishes, or if your family indulges in taco night, you will want to add this recipe to the mix. With a great combination of ingredients like these, they come together perfectly during the fermentation process to create a great tasting salsa that compliments your dish, not overpowers it.

    You wont need to cook these tomatillos before you begin; some prefer to do this while others don’t. If you want to give your salsa Verde a mild smoky taste, then you will want to roast them just a little bit prior to preparing this recipe.

    Tomatillos

    There are many reasons to add tomatillos to your diet each day. Some of these reasons includes:

    Improves digestion – like most other vegetables, these tomatillos are high in fiber which can help the digestive tract move the way that it should. With a healthy digestive tract, you experience less gas and bloating as well as constipation. it also decreases your chances of colon cancer and gastric ulcers from developing.

    Does your immune system need a little boost? Most everyone can use some help in this department. With the vitamin C found in tomatillos, you can give your digestive system a little boost which will ultimately stimulate the production of the important white blood cells in the body.

    Vision improvement is also a great asset found in the tomatillos. With Vitamin A and beta carotene found in this veggie, your eye health will get a little extra back up.

    Are you trying to lose weight? Your not alone and with tomatillos added to your diet, you can get a little boost. Because tomatillos are high in nutrients, low in calories, and with the high fiber found inside, you will feel more full and require less food per meal which will give you a chance to succeed in your plan to lose excess weight.

    If you battle for energy each day, you will appreciate the tomatillos. The niacin found in this veggie is responsible for helping the enzymes process the foods that you eat and turn those foods into energy. If you dont have a diet rich in niacin, you may be struggling for energy.

    Lowering blood pressureand working on the overall health of the heart is important. With the potassium found in this veggie, it can help to lower the blood pressure and reduce the stress that is put on the cardiovascular system.

    Peppers

    Jalapeno peppers work best for this recipe. While this type of pepper is a little more spicy than others, you will appreciate that little extra kick will taste good when combined with all the other ingredients listed below.

    Onions

    While yellow onions are good, you will want to use white onions for this recipe. The white onion brings a little kick to the mix but not as much as the yellow would. However, if you don’t have a white onion around, feel free to use the yellow instead.

    Cilantro

    One of the best ways to enjoy cilantro is mixed in a Mexican dish such as this. Cilantro is healthy and can help the body in many ways:

    • Helps the body get rid of heavy metals
    • Lowers anxiety and has a calming effect
    • Lowers blood sugar levels
    • Prevents urinary tract infection
    • Can protect against food poisoning
    • Help improve cardiovascular health
    • Prevent UTI’s
