Tomato Salsa Verde
Updated: Sep 18
This is a great condiment for most meats, poultry, fish and rice or potatoes. Can be frozen and pull out as needed.
Makes approx. 3-4 cups
1 pound tomatillos, husked and cored
3 whole garlic cloves, peeled
3 whole jalapeños, cut off stem
Homemade chicken stock or water
Salt (see Food List)
1 med white onion, minced about 2T
Fresh cilantro, minced about 2T
Put tomatillos into a stock pot with garlic and jalapeños. Cover with stock or water. Add salt. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer until tomatillos are tender, about 15 minutes. Set aside jalapeños.
In a blender, puree in batches until smooth. Add jalapeños one at a time and stop when you have desired heat level.
You can fold in onion and cilantro by hand. Season with salt and more onion/cilantro if desired.
