Tomatillo BBQ Sauce -AKA- Verde BBQ Sauce
This Green BBQ sauce is the perfect mix of sweet, citrus and tang. Amazing as a sauce or marinade...the possibilities are endless. I keep this version mild but, feel free to use ANY pepper you prefer. I've heard habanero and serrano are particularly delicious!
