I've never made anything with tomatillos before. Though they've intrigued me! I've seen them at the store and they look so cute. I just didn't know what to do with them.
Until Jenn from Slim Shoppin' made an awesome looking green salsa. She raved so much about it that I just had to make it!
I didn't have a poblano pepper, I KNEW I forgot something! So I just used a red pepper. So, it's not so green anymore. Oh well. I think this is the kind of recipe that you can pretty much just stick anything in and it will be awesome! (well, maybe not peanut butter)
I used this salsa on MANY things!! I made some cheesy chimichangas and drizzled a bunch on them.
I also made an egg quesadilla several mornings with egg beaters and the green salsa! Super low calorie, filling and incredibly tasty!
Finally, it was used on a chicken salad made with leftover chicken from a buffalo wing pizza. So basically, you can put this stuff on pretty much anything!
It was SO quick & easy to make. I will totally make this again! The only thing I would do different is add some cilantro.
The only bad part was after I had the blender out and cleaned. The kids
Green Tomatillo Salsa Recipe
Adapted from Slim Shoppin'
About 10 tomatillos, paper removed
1 onion, chopped
1 poblano pepper (I used red), rough chopped
4 -5 cloves of garlic, peeled (I so went heavy on this, I love garlic)
Juice of 1/2 lime
Few drops of hot sauce (to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Cilantro (optional) I didn't but would next time
Chuck everything in a pan with olive oil and cook for about 10 minutes until it starts to cook and tomatillos get a bit of color. Charring it a bit is fine too. Dump it in a blender or food processor and blend away. Enjoy!
