Roasted Salsa Verde

Roasted Corn and Tomatillo Salsa
Roasted Corn and Tomatillo Salsa also called roasted - salsa verde and it is my favorite at any Mexican restaurants we visit. Tomatillos are considered a staple ingredient in Mexican cooking. These remind me of gooseberries I love to enjoy at home in summers and I found that actually tomatillos belong to gooseberry family.

Roasted Corn and Tomatillo Salsa
Salsa recipe I am sharing with you is my version of roasted tomatillo salsa with sweet and smoky roasted corn. Believe me, addition of corn is a nice surprise, my husband and I finished a bowl just like that. Sweetness of corn with roasted flavor and hint of lime juice, all you need is a bowl of chips.

And now the healthy part, there is no oil in this dip and sweetness is from corn not from processed sugar. A good skinny dip that you can make in no time and it stays good in airtight container for two-three days. Also, plain corn you eat right off the cob is gluten-free. So it is vegan and gluten-free dip. Try it with rice chips or veggie chips if you prefer..

Roasted Corn and Tomatillo Salsa
I use Roasted Corn and Tomatillo Salsa so many ways in my cooking that I consider it a very versatile recipe in hand. Possibilities are endless, you can add it to chicken soups or sauté some shrimp with 1/2 cup of salsa verde, top it on tacos for a taco night and what not? So easy and flavorful and I promise you can have excellent Mexican Dinner night at home anytime.

So buy some tomatillos and corn and make a big batch of Salsa Verde tonight and Enjoy!!!
