Homemade salsa verde is a great topping to put on chicken, pork or steak. It can even add flavor to tacos or wraps. If you are a fan of Mexican cuisine, this recipe is a must to try at least once. You can find tomatillos with the husks on at any Spanish American supermarket. It only requires a little preparation and the leftovers store very well in the refrigerator (keep it in an air tight container).

1 large jalapeño (chopped coarsely & deseeded)
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
