  • 1 1/2 pounds tomatillos
  • 1 large green bell pepper cut in quarters
  • 1 large onion cut in quarters
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 2-4 cloves garlic depending on your love for garlic

Tomatillo Sauce Steps

  1. Husk and wash the tomatillos
  2. Place all ingredients in a saucepan
  3. Pour in about a pint of water and cover with a tight-fitting lid
  4. Cook until all ingredients are soft, about 20-30 minutes
  5. Drain off the liquid
  6. Run the cooked veggies through a food processor
  7. For salsa, add some minced hot pepper and minced fresh cilantro. Be bold in playing with this. Different peppers, green onions, fresh garlic – add things you generally like in your salsa. Green salsa traditionally has green ingredients, but you do not need to be limited.
  8. Add one cup of crushed hulled pumpkin seed to three cups of sauce. Pour over a large skilled of fried zucchini. Toss well and cover with grated Colby jack cheese. Melt the cheese and enjoy.
