Tips for making the homemade tomatillo sauce recipe

Cooking tools we recommend for this recipe

  • Vegetable slicer/chopper: It’ll make dicing up those vegetables so much easier and will save you a lot of time. If you’re afraid of getting your finger cut by a knife everytime you dice those veggies(that’s totally me), I would look into the vegetable slicer. It’s amazing how you can just take some veggies, place them on the dicer, push down and they come out exactly how you wanted them. No more chopping, dicing, cutting and taking so much time to prepare meals.If you’re ready to live the easy cookin’ life, then look no further than the Nemco easy chopper vegetable dicer!
