At our house homemade salsa is king! We have dreams of one day selling our salsas, so I can’t share all our salsa recipes with you BUT I can share this delicious tomatillo salsa recipe with you. As big Top Chef fan’s we are familiar with Rick Bayless. The salsa that man puts out in jars (sold at Costplus and other retailers) is absolutely delicious! I’m a sucker for tomatillo salsa so when we unearthered his recipe for tomatillo we just had to give it a try. Keeping with the theme of recipes I have recently posted, this recipe is also ridiculously easy! At some point I may try it Rick’s way with roasting the tomatillos….
The recipe I have posted is an adaptation of Bayless’ recipe found here
3 – 4 medium tomatillos, husked & rinsed
1 or 2 serrano peppers OR 1 jalepeno – stemmed
2 large garlic cloves, peeled
6 sprigs of fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
1/2 small white onion, finely chopped
Combine the pepper(s), tomatillos, cilantro and garlic in a blender and blend to a course puree.
Stir the onion into the salsa and season with salt (about 1/2 tsp).
Grab some chips & enjoy!!
