    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.

    Excellent! Made almost exactly as written. I used 6 cloves rather than just 4 and browned them along with the whole tomatillos in canola oil. Refrigerated the dip for a good hour prior to serving. There was just a little left and was even better the next day when used as dressing for a grilled chicken salad!!! Nice change from guacamole and we love it!! Thanks for sharing!
