Revisited Tomatillo Salsa Verde

One of our original recipes on this blog was a tomatillo salsa (see LINK).  While supremely tasty, it was lacking in pictures... so I decided to revisit the recipe.

- 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

1) Begin with the tomatillos. Peel the skin off and rinse the tomatillos under some water.

2)  Cut each tomatillo in half and place the cut-side down on a pan. Fold the aluminum foil, to contain the juice that will be released.

3)  Place under the broiler for 4-5 minutes until there is a nice char on the outside of the tomatillos.

4)  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.
