Tomatillo salsa

David and I inherited a few pounds of frozen tomatillos from our friend Elaine when she moved up north and what better way to use it but to make some homemade salsa?! David found a recipe in the grocery store and it was very easy to make.

This is what you need:

  • 1 lb tomatillos, husked and rinsed
  • 3-4 serrano chili
  • 1 jalapeno chili
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
This is how to make it:
  • Grill tomatillos and peppers in the oven until their peels blacken a bit, then take them out, flip them over and do the same on the other side of them.
  • Peel off the black parts of the tomatillos and peppers. Seed and devein chiles. Transfer to food processor.
  • Mix all the flesh of the tomatillos and peppers together with the lime juice until it is a smooth paste (unless you prefer your salsa chunkey).
  • Spice the salsa with salt, paprika and fresh cilantro
  • Your salsa is now ready to be eaten. If you are not going to eat all the salsa straight away, bring the salsa to a boil before canning it.
