Fritz's Fantastic Tomatillo Salsa Verde
<=== These are tomatillos. The two in the back still have their "paper" husk attached, the front one has been cleaned and is now ready to use.
This salsa recipe is a great way to clean out your fridge,
today we are using tomatillo, bell pepper, jalapeno, onion,
a very ripe tomato, some garlic, and cilantro.
cut out the pithy
area where the stem attaches
and quarter or half
Fritz prefers the bigger ones,
as there is less work,
and face it,
<== When chopping, attempt to keep the size fairly uniform so it will cook evenly. This mix contains the tomatillo, 2 green bell peppers, 1 ripening bell pepper, 1 1/2 (or 2) onions, and 3 jalapenos. Remember the garlic (and black pepper) will burn if you add them during this stage. Coat lightly and evenly in oil, we used canola. SALT LIBERALLY!
The photo below is the veggies post roast. They smell amazing already. Now you just have to blend this all together and add the finishing touches!
With this recipe our favorite application has been enchiladas, which I will post pictures of later. You could use this sauce in a number of ways, eggs would be particularly delicious (huevos rancheros verde!).
Go ahead and try using different amounts of each ingredient depending on what flavors you like. Our sauce varies month to month depending on what the fridge holds.
You are done now, go forth and make enchiladas!

As Halloween nears, I begin to finally get into the holiday spirit. I like to drag out the holiday season from October through January 1st! This time of year I don my gay apparel, also known as an apron, and begin creating goodies for all of those I love. In the past I made chocolate truffles, but this year I wanted to improve upon my recipe. While rolling up the chocolate ganache I came up with a grand idea after I squeezed one of the truffles to hard... a disturbingly delicious little doggie doodoo! This year I plan on serving these decadent droppings at our Halloween party and look forward to seeing guests reactions.
