Tomatillo Salsa Verde

I ran out of salsa verde when making some delicious Mexican food, so I decided to venture out and make it myself. I was always nervous to make my own, because tomatillos have a weird husk on them, and I just assumed it would be hard to get off! Turns out, the husk is pretty much just like an overgrown leaf, and this was one of the EASIEST salsa recipes I have ever made! We had enough to put in our shredded beef, and to eat as an appetizer! 🙂
