Tomatillo Salsa

This is probably one of my all time favorite salsas. It's super easy to make and the flavor combo and texture are fresh and delicious. Spread it all over some charred corn tacos or enjoy it with organic blue corn chips!. Note: This amount of chiles produces a medium-spicy salsa; if you'd like it milder, use only one serrano or half a jalapeno. If you want an extremely mild salsa (no heat), remove seeds from peppers.

1/2 pound tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and quartered
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup packed cilantro leaves
heaping 1/2 teaspoon salt
squeeze of fresh lime juice


Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse to combine and get juices flowing. Blend on low speed until a coarse puree is formed. Pour into a dish, taste and add more salt or lime if desired. Salsa can be thinned with a bit of water if desired.
