A great late-summer salsa made with tomatillos, cilantro, onions, and peppers from the farmers' market. Easy to make and delicious on tacos or enchiladas!
- Tomatillos (1 lb.)
- Onion (1, diced)
- Serrano or other hot pepper (1, diced)
- Garlic (4 cloves, minced)
- Fresh Cilantro (1/2 cup, roughly chopped)
- Salt (1 Tbsp, or more tontaste)
- Cumin (1 1/2 teaspoon)
- Lime juice (1 Tbsp)
- Water (1 1/2 Cups)
Husk and rinse the tomatillos.
Dice the onion, peppers, and garlic. Halve the tomatillos and roughly chop your cilantro.
Heat about 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add onions, cumin, and salt and sauté for about 5 minutes. Then add peppers and garlic and sauté for a couple more minutes.
Add tomatillos, cilantro, and water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 15 minutes or until tomatillos are soft.
Let cool, add lime juice, and then puree with an immersion blender or in batches in a standard blender. Enjoy!
