Green Tomatillo Salsa:

Salsa has increased in popularity all across America. People accordingly, are searching for new, better taste, and quality, in condiment choices. In this quest for culinary excellence, to often decisions of quality may be a decision based on price. Home made salsa might offer the perfect solution, offering not only taste and quality, but will have a markedly reduction in price at the same time.

To make Green Tomatillo Salsa, first gather all the ingredients.

14 to 16 medium sized tomatillos

1 bunch of diced fresh cilantro (optional)

3 large yellow onions pealed with the ends cut off

4 Jalapeno Peppers (optional)

1 red large sweet red banana pepper

1 large Pablano Pepper

6oz can of diced green chilies

Zest and Juice of a large lemon

Zest and Juice of a large lime

2 tsp ground Cumin

2 tblsp fresh ground garlic cloves

Wash the tomatillos and peppers, and place them on the grill along with the onions. Rotate them frequently until they are evenly cooked and the skin begins to lift from the flesh. The Tomatillos will begin to turn a light green with a yellowish tent and show signs of braising as they Roast. The Onions will get blackish stripes and begin to turn opaque. Roast them until they soften evenly.

Remove the tomatillos and peppers along with the onions and let them cool. Once cooled, peal the outer dark layer of the onions and slice them into quarters. Remove the skin from the peppers and tomatillos to reveal the cooked flesh underneath. Cut off the tops of the peppers and slice them down the middle. Remove the seeds and set them aside. Peal the skin off the tomatillos and cut them in half. Remove the core as you might a tomato.

Place the Onion quarters and cilantro into a food processor and puree them together. Add the crushed garlic, cumin with the lemon and lime zest. and blend them together. Now you can add the tomatillos and peppers along with the lemon juice and blend well. Chill and serve with tortilla chips or use as a seasoning for a favorite Mexican dish.
