Tomatillo Salsa

I have grown tomatillos several years in a row. I am ashamed to admit I have never once tried them. I have never made any dish with them up until yesterday. I don't know what got into me, but I decided this was the year to actually eat some of the tomatillos that we planted. So I made a salsa out of them that was wonderful. I still love traditional salsa, but this dish was a great change of pace. Hope you enjoy!

Cut 10 tomatillos in half and place under broiler for about 7 minutes.
In blender, mix the following:
roasted tomatillo
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped and seeded
1 Tablespoon Lime juice
1/4 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste
Pulse all the ingredients until it is the consistency you like. I like mine to have some small chunks. Let cool in the refrigerator. Serve with chips.
grace and peace,

That looks really good! It amazes me you can cook and can in the midst of all the remodeling:)

I can cook during the mess, but I don't have desire to do so. I just do it because it is something that has to get done. I am looking forward when the kitchen is finished and I enjoy being in there once again.
