Fresh Tomatillo Salsa with Chimayo Peppers

Mix up a batch of this Tomatillo salsa and it's sure to be a hit!  With fresh Tomatillos, a couple fresh Chimayo chiles or Jalapeños or any hot pepper, plus 2-4 fresh garlic cloves, chopped onion, salt, pepper, fresh cilantro and cumin, this is a fresh salsa that you'll love.

  • Tomatillos (as many as you can pick! (A bowl's worth or more)
  • 1/2 Sweet White or Purple Onion, diced (rinse and soak in cold water to remove sharp taste and sweeten onion)
  • 2-3+ Garlic cloves
  • 1-2+ Jalapeños or other Hot Peppers (like Chimayos, Carolina Reaper
  • Fresh Cilantro (I usually use a small bunch of it, but use to taste)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Cumin Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 Lime – juiced (optional)

Unwrap the tomatillos, wash in warm water (aren't they greasy?!) 

Then add all of the other ingredients except for the chopped onions into a blender / food processor and blend until smooth. Add onions and mix for a second, then viola! One of our favorite salsas. Serve with tortilla chips.
