- Tomatillos (you can buy them at ethnic supermarkets)
- One small onion
- One green pepper (Serrano or jalapeño for a spicy version)
- 2 or 3 garlic cloves
- Juice of 1 or 2 limes
- salt, pepper and vinegar to taste
The reason I am not giving you quantities is that you really can alter the amounts according to your taste.
First you need to prepare the tomatillos! You will have to peel them to remove the husk. They are extremely sticky! Put the peeled tomatillos in a colander and wash them thoroughly until they are not sticky anymore.
In a food processor, put the tomatillos, peppers, onion, garlic and cilantro and work it until it is a smooth paste.
Put the paste in a pan, add the lime juice, salt, pepper and vinegar to taste.
Cook for about 15 minutes until the salsa turns a darker more yellowish green. Try it as you go and adjust the taste with more salt, pepper, lime juice ad vinegar as needed.
When ready, put on a container and let it cool. You can use it for everything! on top of steaks is the best, but you can also use with potatoes, chicken, tacos, etc.
It will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.
