Salsa Verde

Tuesday is Recipe Day for Folkart and Primitives

Football season is here and what do most do while watching the games???

We snack !

Here is a recipe that in itself is low fat....what you use to dip into it, is another story. 

Salsa Verde:  Green Tomatillo Salsa
 Here is what you will need  

8 ounces (5-6 medium) tomatillos, husked and rinsed
Fresh hot green chilies, to taste (roughly 2 serranos or 1 jalapeno) stemmed
5 or 6 sprigs fresh cilantro (thick stems removed), roughly chopped
Scant 1/4 cup finely chopped onion

Roughly chop the tomatillos and the chiles.  In a blender or food processor, combine the tomatillos, chiles, cilantro and 1/4 coup water.  Process to a coarse puree, then scrape into a serving dish.  rinse the onion under cold water, then shake to remove excess moisture.  Stir into the salsa and season with salt, usually a generous 1/4 teaspoon.

Depending on your preference to heat from the chilies, you can substitute the serranos or jalapeno for a hotter pepper.
