Recipe

Tomatillos, which are not related to tomatoes, have a fruity, fresh flavor that complements most any food or dish they accompany.

Yield: About 1½ cups, or 4 servings
Prep time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • About 8 ounces fresh tomatillos (1½ cups husked)
  • 1 fresh jalapeno
  • 1 1-inch wedge fresh onion (about ¼ cup) onion
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves (including tops of stalks)
  • Salt (optional)

Directions

 

 

1. Pour about an inch of water into a saucepan with a lid and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, husk the tomatillos, rinse, and cut the larger ones to be the same size as the others for even cooking.

2. Cook the tomatillos for 5 to 7 minutes, until fork-tender. Drain, reserving some of the liquid. Place the tomatillos, jalapeño, onion, and cilantro in a blender or food processor and process until pureed. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding salt and more jalapeño or cilantro, if desired.
