Ingredients: tomatillos, onion or scallion, garlic, hot pepper, cilantro, oregano, salt, water
Preparing: Dice the tomatillos and onion or scallion and mince the garlic and hot pepper. Saute these ingredients over medium heat with some fresh cilantro leaves, fresh or dried oregano, salt and 1 cup of water per 2 pounds of tomatillos. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all ingredients are soft and then puree in food processor or blender.
Eating: A great salsa for tacos, burritos or meats. You can all of the ingredients to taste.
Dish history: We were just experimenting with some ripe tomatillos and had all of the fresh ingredients from the garden. We like it spicy, so kept in some seeds of the hot peppers.
