Sweet Tomatillo Salsa
I don't know if any of you remember a Mexican restaurant in Provo called Rosa's....anyway, they had the most fabulous tomatillo salsa. In fact, loved it so much, that when Jared proposed to me, he brought this salsa. So, I've been trying to recreate it, and here's what I've come up with. Pretty good if I do say so myself!
10 tomatillos, husked
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small can diced green chiles
1/4 - 1/2 cup cilantro (depending on how much you like cilantro, i love it and say,the more the better)
2 tsps lime juice
3-4 tblspns brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like things, and again, for me, the more the better)
2 tsps white sugar
salt to taste
Place tomatillos in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to boil. Simmer until tomatillos soften and begin to burst, about 10 minutes.
Drain tomatillos and place in a food processor or blender. Add back to saucepan with remaining ingredients, except cilantro. Cook a short time, just until it boils. Remove from heat and stir in the cilantro.
I like it on chips, on tacos, burritos, etc.
