I don’t remember when or how I first discovered this Herdez Salsa Verde, but I do know that for a very long time now whenever I want some spicy green chile flavor in a recipe, this is the salsa verde I always choose. And I’ve made so many recipes using it that I decided it was time I featured this favorite product that you’ll always find in my fridge as one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks!

What is Salsa Verde?

Salsa Verde is a Spanish name that literally means “green sauce” in English. This spicy green salsa usually includes both tomatillos and green chiles, and it’s definitely a staple in Mexican cooking. And if whenever you see a recipe or a restaurant menu item that mentions green chile sauce, it is probably some variation of this classic sauce. The salsa can be mild to very spicy, and as you can see these photos, I buy the mild variety most often.

Is Herdez Salsa Verde low in carbs?

One reason I’ve used this flavorful green chile salsa so much is that it’s quite low in carbs, with only 30 carbs in a 16 oz. jar. And in most recipes this isn’t something you use in huge amounts.

Where can you get Herdez Salsa Verde?

If you live in the U.S. many grocery stores will carry this product, but if you don’t find it you can buy Herdez Salsa Verde (affiliate link) at Amazon.
