Tomatillo Salsa


This recipe comes from JoyTT in Texas.  She uses this on her Chicken Enchilada recipe but this could be used in a lot of other recipes.


2 lbs tomatillos (husk peeled and rinsed)
3-4 garlic cloves
2 chilies (Serrano or Jalapeño depending on your heat preference)
1 c cilantro
1/2 onion rough chopped

Put the tomatillos, garlic and 1/2 of the peppers in a pot of boiling water. Simmer till the tomatillos go from bright green to dull green about 10 minutes until they change color, do not cook any longer or they will get bitter.
Put the tomatillos, peppers and garlic including fresh peppers in food processor… Add additional fresh pepper, cilantro, onion and salt to the food processor and blend till smooth.
When the sauce is smooth, heat a pot with olive oil and when hot add salsa and simmer till thickened.
