Last year was the first time I ever planted tomatillos plants in my garden. While my tomatoes struggled last year, the tomatillos went crazy and they are even crazier this year given all of the summer rain in Colorado.
My first try at tomatillos salsa went the easy – route and it was delicious. I froze a few bags for winter enjoyment, too! I plan to branch out this year and try a few other recipes, too!
SALSA VERDE: EASY RAW GREEN TOMATILLO SALSA
8 ounces (5-6 medium) tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1 jalapeno (or 2 serranos), stemmed
5-6 sprigs fresh cilantro (thick stemmed removed), roughly chopped
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
salt to taste
Chop the tomatillos and the jalapeño. In a blender or food processor, combine the tomatillos, jalapeño, cilantro and 1/4 cup water. Process to chase puree, then scrape into a serving dish. Stir in the chopped onion and salt.
