Between our garden and our CSA, we’ve had an overabundance of tomatillos. I haven’t particularly liked tomatillo salsa that I bought in the store, but I thought this was quite good. I’m a tomato salsa gal all the way, but this is good if you are out of tomato-based salsa. 😉
This recipe makes 1 salsa jar. Increase as you’d like.
- 1 lb tomatillos, husked and halved
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 3/4 of a jalepeno pepper, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
- 1 Tbsp fresh oregano
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp salt
Using a food processor (or Vitamix on speed 4), puree the tomatillos until it has a chunky consistency. Put pureed tomatillos in a pot with all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn down and simmer about 30 minutes, covered. Towards the end, you might choose to uncover if it is too liquidy for your liking. Refrigerate and enjoy!
