Perfect Tomatillo Salsa Verde

If you want to know how to make the perfect salsa verde with those weird green tomato-looking things with a peel (aka tomatillos), you should definitely try this recipe!  I adapted this recipe from one that looked promising:


Ingredients:
- 1-2 lbs tomatillos
- 1/2 onion
- 1 jalapeno (seeds removed unless you like a lot of heat)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 cup of cilantro
- a pinch of cumin, paprika, salt and pepper

Recipe for Tomatillo Salsa Verde:

1) Begin with the tomatillos. Peel the skin off and rinse the tomatillos under some water.  Cut in half and place the cut-side down on a pan. Place under the broiler for 4-5 minutes until there is a nice char on the outside of the tomatillos.


2) Dump the broiled tomatillos into a food processor with onion, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.  Pulse until desired chunkiness.  I prefer mine to be fairly smooth.

Enjoy on top of some huevos rancheros, pulled pork tacosfish tacos or chips.
