I absolutely love making tomatillo salsa and love it on my chips and on my rice. Here is a simple way to do it.

  • 1 1/2 lb tomatillos
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 Jalapeño peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
  • Salt to taste

Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well. Place tomatillos in a saucepan, cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove tomatillos with a slotted spoon. Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, chili peppers, sugar in a food processor (or blender) and pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed.

Add 1 avocado for a creamier texture. Season to taste with salt.  Cool in refrigerator
