Five pounds of tomatillos

I bought five pounds of tomatillos on Cheetah.

To get to know them quickly, I made salsa verde with fresh (uncooked) ingredients. I’ve been meaning to cook with tomatillos for years, so it’s nice to finally get to know them.

Results: A tart flavorful fresh-tasting salsa. Not quite spicy enough. Missing something, I think. Next things to try: add onion, or cook the tomatillos before adding.

To make it, I blended six tomatillos, approx 1 cup of cilantro, 2 serrano chiles, and approx 1/2 tsp of salt.

I also bought five pounds of serrano chiles and a one-pound bag of cilantro. And twenty-four bunches of green onions. I thought it might have been twenty-four stems of green onions.
