Tomatillo Salsa (Salsa Verde)

The best thing about this recipe is you make it in a blender and you can make it as mild or as hot as you like. For my first run I made it super mild. It is so fresh tasting. We have tried it on cornmeal crusted tilapia, grilled chicken, and breakfast burritos. It goes great with everything! Fresh cilantro is the key to this recipe. It gives it a fresher taste and more body than dried would. To make it mild, seed the Serrano chilies completely. For extra heat, add the seeds back in.

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 Serrano chiles, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 (11-ounce) can tomatillos, drained
1 garlic clove, minced

Place all ingredients in blender, process until smooth.
