Homemade Tomatillo Salsa

 Hi Folks,

This is a very simple recipe for a tomaillo salsa that only takes
about 45 - 60 minutes from start to finish. The cost is well under $2.00, the main cost being the tomatillos.

If you have never had a tomatillo salsa the flavor is a little tart and sour and a little tangy. There is no heat unless you add peppers, so you can adjust the heat level with either more or less peppers, I just find this recipe right for me.

You will need:

1 pound of tomatillos
( tomatillos should be firm and a bright green )
3 cloves of garlic
2 serrano peppers

Peel and wash the tomatillos, place ingredients in a pan, roast on stove top or under broiler, checking and rotating often until ingredients are charred and soft, everything won't cook at the same time, so as ingredients become charred and soft, transfer to a container and cover with plastic wrap or foil

Continue in this manner until everything is charred and soft.
Once everything is in the container and covered, wait 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, you will have something that looks like this, your ingredients will have become softer and produced a good amount of liquid.

Remove the stems from the serranos
and the tomatillos,  peel the garlic.
Put all the ingredients, including liquid into a blender and blend until smooth.

The end result will look something like this, and will produce about
a cup of of salsa.

This salsa goes well with chips, tacos, enchiladas, eggs or as the base for other Mexican sauces.

You could also add lime juice, and cilantro, and mix with sour cream to transform this salsa into something that is even more yummy. Just try that on your on your next soft tacos.

I hope you you try and enjoy this recipe.

Thanks for reading.
