Tomatillo Salsa - WICKED GOOD

Tomatillos are called green tomatoes in Mexico.   They are a staple in Mexican cooking.   We grow our own tomatillos and use them for a variety of dishes including this salsa.   Very delicious.


• 3 cups tomatillos, chopped
• 1½ cups onions, chopped
• 2 small or 1 large jalapeno peppers, chopped
• 3 garlic cloves, chopped
• ¼ to 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped (I enjoy cilantro so I go to the ½ cup)
• 1/4 cup lemon juice
• 2 teaspoons roasted cumin  (I enjoy cumin so I go much heavier on the cumin).
• 1 tablespoon sea salt


Combine all ingredients in a pot and stir frequently over high heat until mixture boils.  Reduce heat.   Simmer 20 minutes.

You can also freeze this salsa.
