Quick Tomatillo Salsa
1 lb. tomatillos
2-3 jalapeños
Salt to taste
1 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
1 bunch cilantro, chopped with stems
Water to cover

In a medium pot add tomatillos, and jalapeños. Cover with water. Add salt to season. Bring water to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer until tomatillos and peppers have softened. Allow to cool enough to handle. Reserve cooking liquid to the side. Remove cores of tomatillos and add to blender jar. Remove stems from jalapeños and chop. (Remove seeds now if less heat is desired) Then add peppers to blender jar. Add salt to taste and garlic. Then add 1/4 c. of cooking liquid to jar, and process until smooth. Add chopped cilantro and process until smooth.

Serve with chips, or use in your favorite pork dish. Enjoy!
