'Wink' A great home-made experiment of tomatillo sauce!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the skin off the tomatillos and they should feel sticky, wash until it doesn't feel sticky and does not have anymore dirt on it; cut in half or quarter.
  2. Trim the stem of the pepper and cut in half.
  3. Cut all of the stems off the cilantro and wash so there are *no* bad leaves on them.
  4. Peel and score the clove of garlic.
  5. Put the tomatillo, garlic and pepper halves in a pot of water (doesn't matter how big, just make sire they have some room).
  6. Let the water boil for about five minutes in medium-high water, and wait till the tomatillos color turns a bit yellowish.
  7. Once boiled, move the tomatillos, garlic and peppers into a food processor with about 1/2 of a cup of the hot-water (you can eye-ball it) and mix with the lemon juice and cilantro.
  8. Blend until they are all mixed up and at the point between course and smooth.
  9. Move to a container and let cool (optional, but I recommend it).
  10. Put on anything and enjoy!
