These Black Bean Nachos with Salsa Verde are fresh and vibrant. This easy south-of-the-border appetizer will be the first thing to disappear at your next big gathering!
* Tomatillos look like green tomatoes. They have bright, citrusy flavor and are a key ingredient in Mexican and Central-American cuisines. You'll find them near the tomatoes in the produce section of larger grocery stores and also Hispanic markets. They have a papery husk covering the fruit which should be removed before eating. I find it's easy to remove the husk under warm running water. The water will also remove a sticky coating on the tomatillos which is actually, a natural insect repellent.
** Jalapeños vary tremendously in heat levels. For the Salsa Verde, I recommend starting with a half, then tasting before adding the onion. You can always add more but it's hard to take heat away.
