Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Tomatillo Salsa Verde, dip or topping

Calling all salsa lovers and bariatric champs. We’re serving authentic Mexican restaurant flavor straight to your kitchen. If you love finding any reason to top your favorite dish off with salsa or ever have a hankering for a flavorful snack, our bariatric-friendly Tomatillo Verde salsa is made just for you.

Compared to tomatoes, tomatillos have more of an acidic taste which gives them a sharper flavor with a subtle undertone of sweetness. The fruit itself is not necessarily spicy, however, it is commonly used to make extremely hot salsas. 

When it comes to choosing which tomatillos to take home from the grocery store, it is recommended that you look for a dry and papery husk on the tomatillo. If the tomatillo appears to be damp or shriveled, do not purchase it.

If you’re looking for mildly spicy salsa that packs a mouthful of deliciousness then this salsa will be your go-to green salsa. In comparison, our Tomatillos Verde salsa is very similar to what you would find at an upscale Mexican restaurant. 

With the combination of poblano, jalapeno, and tomatillo peppers you’ll find that the green beauties taste just as great as they look. Part of the reason the peppers and ingredients blended so well together was due to the immersion blender we used to make it with. The immersion blender is a bariatric must-have kitchen gadget. Immersion blenders are great for making your favorite salsas or purees and best of all they go into your container full of ingredients which limits clean up and mess.

Overall this recipe was made in under 20 minutes and can be enjoyed by everyone. Top off your favorite bariatric-friendly Mexican dinner with our salsa recipe or enjoy with some low-calorie tortilla chips or cheese crisps. If you’re planning on adding a little spice to your bariatric diet and re-create this recipe, let us know on social media. We’d love to see how you enjoy it!

WLS Afterlife is dedicated to presenting new bariatric-friendly meals weekly so you can continue to enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to enjoy!  If we listed an ingredient you were told to avoid, write to us so we may provide you with plenty of other tasty alternatives.
