It’s that time of year again, so break out the cervezas. It’s Cinco de Mayo! Hopefully, the weather is great where you live, and you’re going to spend the evening with friends and family, a tasty margarita, and some chips and salsa. We’ll be enjoying this bright green salsa made with fresh tomatillos and lime. There’s a big kick from the jalapeño, so have your drink nearby. This spicy salsa fresca is ready to party.
