We are part of a fruit and vegetable co-op that lets us get all sorts of good stuff every other week from the local farmers market. This week we got a ton of tomatillos for free so I tried out a new recipe from allrecipes.com. It was super easy to make and I served it over enchiladas and quesadillas. We also just dipped chips in it. We thought it was yummy so I thought I'd share!
1 pound tomatillos, husked
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 serrano chile pepper, minced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
2 cups water
Place tomatillos, onion, garlic, and chile pepper into a saucepan. Season with cilantro, oregano, cumin, and salt; pour in water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the tomatillos are soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
Using a blender, carefully puree the tomatillos and water in batches until smooth.
*I pureed everything in my food processor and it worked well. I also didn't mince the chile pepper and I used dried oregano.
