Since we’ve been around our local farmers market a lot more lately (well, lately we’ve been out of town!) and since my sister Anna is a bit of a foodie, we’ve been making more exciting recipes than I would normally make. I’ve been inspired by a few things recently to change the way I think about cooking (an obligation) and food (a necessity). More on that later though, that’s all pretty deep stuff. For now, spicy tomatillo salsa!
Anna got some cute little tomatillos at the market a few weeks ago so we roasted them and made some salsa. It was a teensy bit spicy for my taste, but it’s really good! Plus, tomatillos in their little paper-like pouches are so cute.
We cut the tomatillos into quarters and doused them with olive oil. We added a few onion slices and jalapeños to roast for about 17-20 minutes on 400. They get soft and charred, which really brings out the flavor. Keep reading for the recipe, it’s super fancy and includes really high tech cooking terms like “smooshed.”
We smooshed up the veggies a bit, mixed it in the food processor, and added salt and pepper to taste. That’s it! Pair with regular salsa, chips, guacamole, tacos, margaritas, and you’ve got yourself a fancy mexican dinner. Or just pair with chips like we did!
