One of the foods I have always stayed away from, and continue to struggle with are Tomatoes in anything other than sauce form. Now with El Rey 2 blocks away, I see Tomatillos every time I walk through the door. I have always assumed they were tomatoes, so I just stayed far way.
While watching television recently a show was explaining that tomatillos aren’t a tomato, but rather a fruit related to the gooseberry. I became intrigued with the little green ball covered in a paper husk.
Last night I started with the easiest of tomatillo recipe’s, Salsa verde. I simply had to boil them, and mix them in the food processor with a jalapeno, onion, cilantro and lime juice. It was Delicious. I had it on chicken last night, and on tacos tonight.
Another food to add to my list of likes!!
