Salsa Verde

Charles came across a fantastic salsa verde recipe and we had to give it a try; of course we had to add our own twists.  I loved this.  Very spicy but our jalapeno were quite spicy so that will vary depending on the heat of the peppers.  I really enjoy tomatillos ~ I don’t have them often enough; it’s sort of a citrus and tomato combination.  Five minutes was just enough time to cook them without losing any of the goodness; we didn’t know if they should be cored or anything but we simply cooked them whole and pureed them for the recipe and it was perfect.

Salsa Verde

  • 5 tomatillo
  • 4 cloves garlic ~ peeled
  • 1 medium onion ~ peeled and quartered
  • 2 jalapeno ~ stems removed
  • water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tbs cilantro
  • salt and pepper

Peel tomatillos and wash.  In large saucepan combine tomatillo, garlic, onion, jalapeno; cover with water.  Cook 5 minutes.  Remove vegetables to blender and add 1 cup of cooking liquid.  Add sugar, cilantro, salt and pepper ~ puree for a few seconds to combine.  Chill until ready to serve.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
