Chili Verde

Not only did I make a homemade chili tonight, but I made a homemade salsa verde to go with it. Yeah, that’s right. I’ve never made salsa verde before, mostly because I was super intimidated by tomatillos. Fear no longer, I conquered the leafy, green tomato. The recipe came from the recent Vegetarian Times and I botched it a little. This is my spin on chili verde!

Salsa Verde

  • 6 larger tomatillos, outer skins removed
  • 1 jalapeno, stem removed
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • cumin and salt to taste
  1. Bring veggies to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the veggies start to split open
  2. Use a slotted spoon and transfer to a food processor (reserve some of the stock)
  3. Blend until everything is combined, add water for desired texture. Complete with your desired amount of salt and cumin

  1. Saute green onion in a little bit of the left over tomatillo stock (you can also use oil or water)
