Restaurant style red salsa

Cynthia Southworth Recipe

By Cynthia Southworth kookysupergirl

My good friend Juan is an amazing cook and gave me this recipe. I've added cilantro, green onion and a little bit of lime juice to make it taste just like the kind they made at the Mexican restaurants that I worked at in the past. Enjoy :)

Ingredients

3-4
tomatillos
1 can(s)
mexican style stewed tomatoes (regular 14.5oz can)
1 can(s)
tomato sauce (small 8oz can)
1 c
cilantro (chopped)
6 clove
garlic (minced)
1/2
onion (chopped)
6-10
chili de arbol (chopped)
1
lime wedge
1/2 c
chopped green onion
1 c
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat a pan to med heat. Rinse tomatillos and cut into quarters. Add tomatillos, stewed tomatoes (reserve the juice in the can for later) chopped garlic, onions, and chili peppers (I used 4 and it wasn't too spicy. Normally I'll add more because I love the heat but I was also making this for kids to eat as well) to the pan and let it cook for 20 mins or until the tomatillo skin feels soft.
2
Transfer everything in the pan into a blender and blend and add the stewed tomato juice so it mixes well and blend for 10 seconds or until everything is nice and mixed (salsa looking).
3
Pour salsa into a large bowl, add the chopped cilantro, water, squeeze of a lime wedge, salt and pepper. Let chill covered in the fridge for a few hours.
