I didn't have any ripe tomatoes or jalapenos so, I added a can of tomatoes with green chilis (drained). I also added a little extra garlic. It is delicious & I'm sure it will taste even better tomorrow after the flavors have more time to combine! Next time I will add more tomatillos.
Awesome homemade taste! Husband and kids love it mild or hot! I use 2 plum tomatoes and a few extra tomatillos.
I have been making this recipe for several years.A Latino friend gave me this recipe. The only thing I do different is I grill all the veggies and use 2 tomatoes. All my family and friends ask for this at all our gatherings.Very,Very good.
I made this recipe several times this summer and have eaten it fresh and put some in the freezer for future use. I just found some tomatilloes at the farmers market and plan to make more so I will have it throughout the winter. It is very easy to make. Lori, I think the cooking of the tomatilloes just softens them a bit. It still tastes like a fresh salsa because of the other ingredients.
I made it with canned hot green chile peppers instead of jalapenos.
