Tomatillo Salsa

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!
