Salsa Verde

SALSA VERDE

fresh salsa verde is always amazing on mexican food or even just chips and salsa . I shopped at my local farmers market for the ingredients .
What I used :
1 pound tomtillos
5 small jalapeno peppers
1/2 medium purple onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
a few squeezes of fresh lime juice to taste (not too much )
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teapoon oregano flakes
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
How I did it :
you have to start by peeling the husk off of the tamatillos and cutting them in half
chop your jalapenos and onions into diced sized pieces
chop up the cilantro
then it is as simple as adding all ingredients to a deep pot and bring to a boil then simmer for approx 10-15 minutes until the tomatiollos are tender .
you are going to want to allow it to cool just slightly because the next step is to put it in the blender and pulse it until it is a good salsa consistency which only takes a few rounds of the pulse button .
wa la … salsa verde.
My version was spicy and of course if you want a little more heat just add more jalapeno or even try a hotter variety of pepper . Top a nice plate of tacos with your salsa and grab a margarita and enjoy !
