Salsa verde

My aunt and uncle showed me this recipe over our Christmas get-together. This authentic green sauce is absolutely amazing. I ate it on tamales (don’t ask how many:), chips, enchiladas, and pretty much anything I could get my hands on. The recipe takes some guessing, so you can get it just how you like it. The recipe makes quite a bit more than what is shown in the picture.

Boil about 8 tomatillos and 5 jalapenos (in separate pots!) until the skin starts to wrinkle. Seed the jalapenos and peel the tomatillos… beware- they are flipping hot. Chop about 1/4 onion and (we used) 2 garlic cloves. Blend them with the jalapenos for about 5-10 seconds. Separately, blend tomatillos, some cilantro, and salt for another 5-10 seconds. Now what you do is add the jalapeno mixture to the tomatillo mixture to taste. So if you would rather it not be very spicy don’t add a whole lot. But if you’re like me, add quite a bit. Just stir and eat!!!!!
