❓ What are Tomatillos, and Where Can You Find Them?
Tomatillos are small green fruits that resemble tomatoes, wrapped in a papery green/brown husk. Inside, they are bright green and slightly sticky, offering a distinctive sour and citrusy flavor.
When purchasing tomatillos, look for firm, green fruits with intact husks. Avoid any signs of decay. To prepare them, remove the husks and rinse the tomatillos to eliminate stickiness. You can typically find tomatillos near peppers, tomatoes, or tropical fruits in your local grocery store.
If you have trouble finding tomatillos, don’t worry! You can easily substitute 2 tomatillos with the juice from one lime.
