“Make hunger thy sauce, as a medicine for health.” Thomas Tusser
This is a great all purpose sauce for your Southwestern or Mexican dishes. The smoky sweet flavor goes great on tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas or even taco salad.
These lovely fruits are in the same family as tomatoes and are often called Mexican Green Tomatoes or Tomatoes Verde. They are widely available in most markets and, while tomatillos look like small green tomatoes covered with a papery husk, that is where the resemblance ends.
The skin of the tomatillo is tougher and the meat of the fruit is coarse to mealy (of course a lot of the tomatoes on the market now are coarse and mealy). The flavor is acidic and has a wonderful tartness that adds character to salsas, guacamole, moles and sauces.
