Taco Night: Salsa Verde!


 Trent and I decided to do taco night, and I of course was in charge of coming up with the taco night concept. So what did I pick? Only something I have been dying to make since my trip to mexico: Homemade Salsa Verde. I decided to pare it with blackened shrimp soft taco’s and they were delicious! Also we made fresh margaritas! What a fun evening at home. Here is the salsa verde recipe I chose. I picked it because the tomatillos were left fresh and not cooked down. I read somewhere that leaving them raw made the salsa very citrus.

Don't beg Charlie

I have to say it was a great choice for a fresh salsa to accompany the spicy shrimp! Even Mr. Charlie wanted some.

Salsa Verde:

1-1 1/2 pounds tomatillos

2 Jalapenos

1-2 minced garlic cloves

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 squeezed fresh lime or 1 tbsp lime juice

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 small white onion

1· Peel tomatillos and wash them in cold water. Give them a rough chop before placing them in a food processor. 2· Chop onion. 3· Place tomatillos and onion in food processor and process until desired consistency. 4· Add all other ingredients  and blend together.

I hope to make taco night a frequent dinner in our home. I already have a concept for our next fiesta! Stay tuned!

Happy cooking,

♥ Tyler
