  1. Chop coarsely, roast in the oven for a little while. Not too long.

    Make tomatillo salsa in the food processor using white onion, a serrano pepper or two, onion, garlic, cilantro, and salt.

    1. Lots of recipes out there for salsa verde. To be honest, tho, I REALLY enoy it from Taco Bell. Just the right amount of zing.

      1. I made excellent tomatillo salsa this fall. Similar to what tcamp says above but I actually roast on tinfoil on the stovetop along with a couple of tomatoes, onion, serrano or other pepper and garlic. Then just throw the whole thing into a food pro and season.

        This is a delicious green chile and tomatillo chutney:

        1. Grill and freeze! I love tomatillos for enchilada sauce and in salsas.

          1. pork with green chilli's! Go to www.allrecipes.com and look it up.
