The Tomatillos, also known as the Mexican husk tomato, is a plant of the nightshade family bearing small, spherical and green or green-purple fruit of the same name. Tomatillos originated in Mexico and were cultivated in the pre-Columbian era. Blended with spices and herbs like cumin and cilantro Tomatillos lend themselves well to lively Mexican recipes such as enchiladas, tacos, and burritos. They're also excellent in soups, sandwiches, and salads. Salsa verde is a favorite using Tomatillos as the main ingredient, but they also can be a great base for any type of salsa.
Containing all the right ingredients for optimal nutrition, Tomatillos are a very good source of dietary fiber, niacin, potassium, and manganese. They contain 20 percent of the daily recommended value in vitamin C, 13 percent of the Vitamin K and a healthy amount of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and copper. Compared with Tomatoes, Tomatillos provide a few more calories, fat, and protein per ounce, but the extra fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins make up for it.
