Tomatillo Hot SaucePosted: October 15, 2010
This is a nice change from tomato-based hot sauce. It’s great with tortilla chips. Depending on the jalapenos, this sauce can be really hot. If you would like, use serranos instead of jalapenos. Sometimes I blend this sauce until it’s very smooth. I like it that way for burritos and tacos (you could even put it in a squeeze bottle).
Tomatillo Hot Sauce
4 to 6 fresh jalapenos (according to desired heat level), stems removed
1 pound green tomatillos, husks removed and washed
1 medium onion, chopped
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1/2 cup water
2 T. olive oil
1 T. vinegar
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
In a medium saucepan add the jalapenos, tomatillos, onion, vegetable bouillon cube, water, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic. Gently simmer over medium-low heat for 30 minutes. Turn off heat and then let the sauce cool a bit. Add the cilantro and blend the ingredients with a stick blender (or in a food processor or blender).
