Salsa Verde

We have Salsa Verde !
My husband made good use of his time at home today by making a batch of salsa verde using our tomatillo harvest.  The salsa has a citrus flavor and packs just the right amount of heat, not too hot for me and warm enough for him - he loves his hot sauce!

We had tortilla chips on hand but future meals may include 
chicken or pork quesadillas .

12-15 tomatillos,  (husks removed, sliced into quarters)
5 cloves garlic
1 medium  onion coarsely chopped
1 bunch cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 jalapeno, seeded
3 large green chiles, (Poblano peppers) roasted and skins removed
1 tablespoon lemon juice - (recipe calls for lime juice but we were out)


Add onions, jalepeno and tomatillos into a food processor and pulse 4-5 times. 
Add in remaining ingredients and pulse until desired consistency.

Chopped, leaving a little chunkiness to it.

Tomatillos in our garden.

Thanks for this! I just said I needed to figure out what to do with these! Going to go make some right now.

Looks yummy! Someday I am going to work on my knife skills. Until then, I love things that you just throw into a food processor. I have a Cuisinart, but I just got a little hand-cranked food processor that does surprisingly well.

Looks wonderful! I may have to grow tomatillos again next year. :)

My daughter is a vegetarian and fell in love with it. Also our chili verde (she ate around the pork) which I think is a little too hot for my taste but everyone else thought it was super. I'll be posting that as well. I assume you can substitute chicken or even beans for those that don't eat pork.

We don't get the food processor out too often but when we need it, it sure saves time!

At $4/lb in our grocery store I should start selling them next to the lemonade stands!

We thought about mixing it with some red salsa sometimes too for a mix.
