Air Fried Tomatillo Salsa
When it comes to salsa, we do NOT buy it in a jar. It’s way too easy to make your own and control the flavors and ingredients. I have a lot of salsa recipes, but this Air Fried Tomatillo Salsa may very well be my favorite.
This Air Fried Tomatillo Salsa recipe involves air frying the tomatillos first, to give them a beautiful roasted flavor before turning them into salsa. This recipe will make sure salsa isn’t an after-thought but is definitely a key player in your meal.
After you’re done air-frying the tomatillos, just blend the rest of the ingredients together and your salsa is ready to eat.
You can chill it if you prefer your salsa cold, but we like it warm to blend well with the rest of our meal.
