A tangy, earthy green sauce to use alongside your favorite Latin inspired dishes.



*If you don’t have a bouillon cube on hand, cook the tomatillos, onion, and garlic in about 2 cups chicken stock/broth instead of water, and season the final sauce with salt to taste. For a more authentic flavor replace the butter with pork fat; bacon fat leftover from frying is great.


Place tomatillos, onion, and garlic in a small pot and cover with about 2 cups of water; the tomatillos should float in the liquid. Place over high heat until the pot begins to simmer then reduce to low for 4 to 6 min. or until the tomatillo skins change color and fade to a lighter green. Strain the tomatillo mixture. Place the mixture in a blender with the bouillon cube and blend until smooth. Add cilantro and blend for 8 seconds. Melt butter in a medium pot over low heat. Once melted, stir in Mole Verde Spice and cook for 1 to 2 min. Slowly add the tomatillo mixture and lime zest and juice to the pot. Mix until consistent and serve. Store sealed in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Serving Suggestions
