Great salsa is simple to make, and with the Anova Precision Oven, the whole process takes under 30 minutes. This tangy tomatillo salsa has a great balance between bright acidity and deep smoke. The more the vegetables are roasted, the more pronounced the flavor. It can be served with chips as an appetizer or alongside your favorite Mexican-inspired dishes to kick them up a notch. Note: If you are really sensitive to spice, the jalapeño amount can be cut in half or even omitted all together.
