Why Make Super Bowl Tomatillo Salsa?

When it comes to Super Bowl snacks, it's easy to reach for the usual suspects like chips and dips. However, if you're looking for a healthier option that doesn't compromise on flavor, Super Bowl Salsa is the way to go. This vibrant green salsa is packed with nutrients and offers a refreshing twist to your typical game day fare.

The Power of Tomatillos

At the heart of this delicious salsa lies the humble tomatillo. These small, green fruits are often mistaken for unripe tomatoes but have a unique tart flavor that sets them apart. Not only do tomatillos add a tangy kick to your salsa, but they also bring a host of health benefits to the table.

Tomatillos are rich in vitamins A and C, which are essential for a strong immune system. They also contain fiber, which aids in digestion and helps you feel fuller for longer. Additionally, tomatillos are a great source of potassium, which plays a crucial role in regulating blood pressure.

The Secret Ingredient - Pines Wheat Grass

What sets this Super Bowl Salsa apart from the rest is the addition of Pines Wheat Grass. Wheatgrass is a nutrient-dense superfood that provides a wide array of health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, which help protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals.

Including Pines Wheat Grass in your salsa not only enhances the flavor but also adds a nutritional boost. Wheatgrass is a great source of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as minerals like iron and magnesium. It also contains chlorophyll, which has been shown to have detoxifying properties.

How to Make Super Bowl Tomatillo Salsa


  • 12 tomatillos
  • 1 1/2 jalapeños, cut in half and stemmed, seeded and ribs removed
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 small white onion, quartered
  • Cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons of Pines Wheat Grass or any other Pines powder

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Line an oven pan or toaster oven pan with foil.
  • Peel and wash the tomatillos. Cut them in half and roast them in a toaster oven or oven, along with whole garlic cloves, jalapeno slices, and onion quarters until the skin is charred and onions are soft.
  • Scrape all the tomatillo mixture off the foil-lined pan and puree it in a food processor or mini prep.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pans, filling each cup about three-quarters full.
  • Stir in Pines Wheatgrass, and add salt, pepper, and chopped cilantro to taste.

Baking Tips and Variations

• If you prefer a spicier salsa, you can keep the ribs and seeds of the jalapeños.

• Customize the salsa to your taste by adjusting the amount of cilantro, salt, and pepper.
• Serve the Super Bowl Tomatillo Salsa chilled or at room temperature, depending on your preference.
