    Posted by PolyScience Staff

    What’s a party without chips and dip? This Smoked Tomatillo Salsa is done before you even know it. If you prefer a roasted version, blacken the tomatillos on the grill for a few minutes and let cool before you process them. Grab some corn tortilla chips and a cold cerveza. This salsa is muy picante!
