admin's picture
  Tomatillos 3⁄4 Pound
  Jalapeno/Giiero santa fe grande chili 1⁄2 Ounce
  Green onions 2 , ends trimmed, thinly sliced
  Cilantro 2 Tablespoon, chopped
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), peeled minced or pressed
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

1. Discard husks and rinse tomatillos. In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan, combine tomatillos and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and simmer until tomatillos are soft when pressed, 7 to 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer tomatillos to a blender or food processor; reserve cooking water.
2. Rinse, stem, and, if desired for less heat, seed chili. Coarsely chop chili and add to tomatillos along with 2 tablespoons cooking water; whirl until smooth. Pour into a bowl.
3. When cool, add onions, cilantro, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. For thinner salsa, add more of the cooking water.
