Tomatillo Salsa

We've been slightly lame with festive meals the past month--typically repeating some of our ultimate favs (black bean burgers). BUT! Tomatillo Salsa is here and totally delicious!

Tomatillo Salsa

1/2 pound tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and quartered
1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup packed cilantro leaves
heaping 1/2 teaspoon salt

Husk, rinse and dice tomatillos

Chop jalapeño pepper, onion and garlic clove, set aside 1/2 cup cilantro leaves

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse to combine and get juices flowing. (We've tried both methods and found success)

Blend on low speed until a coarse puree is formed.
Pour into a dish, taste and add more salt or lime if desired.

Tomatillo salsa has a very different taste than a tomato based salsa but its delicious and absolutely perfect for tacos or any other mexican style dish you are making.

Here is a little vine video of the process, enjoy!
