Last year, my food processor died a slow and painful death. This tragedy made me realize how much I relied on my food processor. I would constantly pull it out to puree soups, slice strawberries, blend salsas, etc. Instead of purchasing a new food processor, I limped along with my hand blender. Then last month, on a routine trip to Costco, I broke down and purchased a new food processor. (Queue music) Reunited and it feels so good! One of the first things I made to break in my food processor was this homemade Salsa Verde recipe. I concocted this salsa recipe a couple of years ago, and it’s one of my favorites to make.
- 16 to 24 tomatillos
- 3/4 to 1 cup yellow onion (roughly chopped)
- 2 jalapenos (remove seeds if you don’t want hot)
- 1/3 cup cilantro
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 to 2 limes to taste
- salt and pepper to taste
- Roast tomatillos, onion and jalapeno at 400 degrees for 20 minutes (or until slightly brown). Make sure that you rotate half way through.
- Put the above ingredients in your food processor and puree with cilantro and sugar.
- Squeeze in lime and add salt and pepper to taste when finished.
