The lesser-known sibling of tomato salsa, this salsa verde is the perfect accompaniment to our chicken chimichangas.

Smoky Salsa Verde

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS

Salsa verde is a bright, tangy alternative to traditional salsa, but its pucker can be overwhelming. Roasting the tomatillos, along with their traditional salsa verde companions, mellowed their acidic bite and provided a subtle smokiness.
