Tomatillo Salsa or Salsa Verde

http://full.sc/LQTHYV – SUB HERE!
Tomatillo salsa is also known as salsa verde. It is a green sauce that is used in a variety of Mexican dishes. It is tart and very, very good.

Tomatillos are also known as husk tomatoes – although they are only relatives of the tomato. They come covered in a husk and are quite sticky when peeled. A simple rinse will take care of this. I like husking them, washing them and giving them a quick boil. I then cool them off completely and freeze them. This way I always have them handy when I need them.

Makes about three cups of salsa
3 cups husked, chopped tomatillos
½ red onion, finely chopped
½ white onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
3 jalapenos, chopped
2 teaspoons cumin
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup white wine vinegar
1 lime, juiced
Salt

Place all of the ingredients in a heavy pot. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer for 20 minutes. Mash with a potato masher. Preserve in hot jars or cool down and refrigerate.

Serve with chips or use for baking fish or chicken enchiladas with sour cream. Enjoy!
