Recipe: Special Salsa

Scott and I made the most delicious homemade salsa this weekend.  It was based on a Rick Bayless recipe, and turned perfectly - fresh, spicy, and delicious.

1/2 lime
1/2 a clove of garlic
5-6 tomatillos
1/3 of a white onion
1 serrano chile
1 avocado
1 teaspoon of sea salt

First, roast the garlic and the chile.  Then remove them from their blackened skins.  Then put the roasted chile and roasted garlic in to a blender with the rinsed tomatillos avocado and the lime.  Blend to a creamy consistency.

Chop the onion (to taste, I like onion so we used 1/3), and then put in a strainer.  Rinse.  Mix in to the salsa.

One tip - we actually used 1 whole lime and the result was pretty tart.  I'd probably cut that in half the next time we make this (my recommended amounts are above).

  1. Ha ha, I was looking for this!! As tentative as I am with "Frontera" products, I think this sounds great. You should totally serve it next time you have people (me) over at your place.... ;)
