Love the flavor of this one!!!! For a double batch, only had 1.25 lb tomatillos & used 5 tbs lime juice. I pulsed the onion and cilantro first. Removed it and pulsed the rest in order. Then added onion and cilantro back at the end for a final pulse. Less chopping and I am lazy.

DH loved this dip, much better than the recipe I was using. Just used salsa verde for the tomatillos but otherwise was great. Used in Ninfa's Nachos.
