Salsa Verde

This is the basis of green salsa. If you like yours spicier, add more serrano peppers. If you like it mild, add fewer.

15 tomatillos, husked and rinsed
3 serrano peppers
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 large white onion, finely diced
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon ground cumin
fine sea salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 bunch cilantro leaves, finely chopped

food processor fitted with bottom chopping blade
chef's knife
cutting board
medium saucepot
large spoon

1. Put the tomatillos, serrano peppers and garlic in the food processor. Process until pureed.
2. Put the tomatillo mixture in the saucepot. Add onion, cumin, water, salt and pepper and mix.
3. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
4. Lower heat to simmer and cook until salsa turns deeper green.
5. Cool completely. Then, stir in chopped cilantro.
Yields about 4 cups
