Salsa Verde. That’s “Green Sauce”

Sometimes simplicity is the best route to happiness. To wit: Trader José’s Salsa Verde. Traditional salsa verde (green sauce) is a mild, tomato-less alternative to spicy red salsa in Mexican and Southwestern cuisines. Trader José’s Salsa Verde, like any self-respecting example of this sauce, is made primarily from tomatillos, fruits that look like cherry-size green tomatoes, but aren’t actually tomatoes at all. We use fresh tomatillos, along with fresh jalapeño peppers, to craft this sauce that’s been talked about, blogged about, and most importantly, enjoyed in homes all around Trader Joe’s country, for more than 30 years.

Like most salsas, our Salsa Verde makes a respectable dip for tortilla chips. Don’t let the “salsa” moniker stop you from trying it in a wide variety of ways, though. In an enchilada casserole, in a slow cooker with chunks of pork (a chili verde-esqe meal with virtually no work for you at all), with scrambled eggs (a flavorful way to make a Seussian meal), mixed in to add a little boost to your guacamole, as a dipping sauce for bite size chunks of Jalapeño Chicken Sausage… We’ve crafted Trader José’s Salsa Verde with quality, vegan-friendly ingredients, without artificial flavors, gluten, or fat. Unlike so many jarred salsas on the market, this one doesn’t contain thickening agents – its rich, texture is a result of slow cooking. We’re selling each 12 ounce jar for $1.99, every day, the same price it’s been for more than 10 years. You’ll find it on our grocery shelves.


Ingredients: Fresh Tomatiillos, Green Chile, Water, Onions, Fresh Jalapenos, Salt, Spices.
