Food & Cooking Words

Tomatillos are like small size green tomatoes, and they come wrapped in a brown leaf-like covering. Sometimes the covering is removed before the tomatillos are set out for sale.

Remember, experiment and find the exactly right blend of ingredients for you.


Ingredients: tomatillo, onion, garlic, cilantro, and chili serrano (or chili jalapeno).

Wash the vegetables well. If you're using tomatillos, remove the outer leaf-like wrapper before washing.
