Green (Tomatillo ) Salsa

Ingredients…  8-10 tomatillos, peeled and stems removed 2 jalapeños 4 Serrano chiles 1/4 white onion, separated 3 cloves garlic, peeled 3/4 tsp salt 1 cup chicken stock 1/4 cup fresh cilantro 1/2 tsp dried oregano Pinch of comino (cumin) 1 tablespoon lime juice Process… Broil on high (about 4 inches from the heat source) the first 5 ingredients until blistered The garlic should be removed after 3 minutes or so, so it doesn’t burn Turn the rest of the ingredients every 5 minutes or so Remove the ingredients as they become blistered enough The garlic will be done first, then the onion, then the rest of the ingredients I like to add the items to my blender as they are done *dont forget to cut off the stems of the chiles before adding them to your blender You can remove the seed in the chiles if you like, this will render a less spicy salsa Add all ingredients listed to your blender Blend Taste for salt, enjoy!

The Salsa That Reigns Supreme

Okay so I am beyond excited to share this recipe with you. It was a surprise supreme thing taste-wise when completed (in less than 5 minutes I might add) as I was faced with the fact that I was missing tomato sauce, did not want to use fresh tomatoes and really wanted/needed a homemade quick-like salsa asap! I discover tomato paste as a new (to me) key ingredient in salsa making.  I give you my Salsa Supreme… 🙂  1 Tblsp good quality tomato paste 1 cup water 1 Tblsp chopped onion 1 Tblsp chopped cilantro 2 whole chipotle chiles  Here’s the type of chipotle chiles I use  1 small garlic clove 1/2 tsp salt 1 quick squeeze of lime  Process  Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth  That’s it, it’s ready! Refrigerate any unused portion for later enjoyment  * the salsa may seem a bit thin to you, I was ok with the consistency. Next day it certainly does thicken up a bit.
