Directions

  1. Peel clean and quarter tomatillos. When buying tomatillos it is a good idea to check to make sure they are all good.
  2. Peel garlic and cut jalapeno discarding seeds (add some of the seeds if you like your salsa extra hot).
  3. Place tomatillos, garlic, onion and jalapeno in your food processor. With chopping blade pulse several times until consistency is fine and consistent.
  4. Pour mixture into a sieve and drain off the liquid.
  5. In a bowl combine tomatillo mixture with 1/2 to 1tsp salt, about 1/2 tsp black pepper, cilantro and the lime juice. I add as much of the lime pulp as I can because it tastes so great in the salsa.
  6. Taste can be adjusted by adding more lime, garlic or jalapeno. If your tomatillos are especially sour you may add a little sugar.
