it’s hot out here, but this time the sun isn’t causing it…

Since today is such a beautiful day, I found it only fitting to whip up some margaritas by the pool. Margaritas [for once] are not the star players, but rather some über spicy tomatillo-based salsa full of serious zip! It’s a pretty simple salsa actually and you can obviously cater to individual palates regarding heat…
I use eight decent sized tomatillos that I quartered up, two serrano chilies [I prefer to leave the seeds in, but you can remove to make less spicy], three to four garlic cloves, a good handful of fresh cilantro and some salt of course…
I add everything into the food processors and pulse, pulse, pulse until everything is blended, but not babyfood. I prefer to feel the textures as I scoop everything up and devour…
Once blended I taste for heat and salt and go from there… if not salty enough, add salt and if not spicy enough
well add another chili… you can play around till your taste buds sing.
Hope this makes you want to run to your local market, pick up these ingredients and whip [well blend] this salsa up!

at a low simmer…
