I have a special love for authentic Mexican food, which differs from much of what we are served at typical American style Mexican restaurants. I am not an expert at cooking Mexican cuisine but I do love to play in my kitchen with the amazing flavors they use. There is nothing better than homemade salsa and I made my first tomatillo salsa last week and it came out fantastic. You can use it as a dip with tortilla chips or add it to your favorite Mexican dishes.
