Tomatillo Salsa!

I’d like to thank my daughter for some tomatillo seeds. They have flourished in the garden and make a very sweet salsa.

About 25 Small and Medium Tomatillos
1 Small Onion
4 Garlic Cloves
1 Large Jalapenó Chili (or Serrano)
Or more if you like it hot!
3 Dashes Cumin
1 Tsp Salt (Adjust as needed)
Lemon Juice From 1 Average Lemon
Cilantro to desikred taste
1/2 tsp Black Pepper (adjust for taste)

The Process:

  1. Perfecto! Tomatillo is my favorite salsa, with chipotle pepper based salsa running a close second.

    Guilty of not hitting the vimeo, but if you didn’t, you might want to mention the amount of seeds has a dramatic effect on the heat level. 😉 I made the mistake of asking the local Mexican place here if they had any tomatillo salsa to liven up the food a bit. Their food is great quality but bland (too many gringos here, lol). You could strip paint with that tomatillo sause of theirs though, LOL. Good stuff.

    PS: Lime works well in place of the lemon also. 😉

  2. Interesting method of bringing out out the flavor of the tomatillos. Our recipe calls for roasting them in the oven or preferably in a gas grill. Will have to try it your way. Thanks, Mark.
