Salsa Verde

Sometimes you need salsa in a hurry. It's often the perfect thing to round out a meal, serve as a snack, or dress up boring leftovers. Instead of popping open a can of store bought try this quick salsa I threw together- a classic salsa verde with tomatillos, serranos, lime and cilantro. You can enjoy it two ways- fresh or cooked and served warm, and the best part? it comes together in just a few minutes with the aid of a food processor. Couldn't be easier.

1 lb. tomatillos
1/2 large onion, chopped
handful cilantro
3 serranos
juice of 2 limes
1/2 tsp. salt

Roughly chop the tomatillos and combine with the remaining ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until smooth and add a bit of water to thin to desired consistency. Serve raw or cook over medium heat, about 5-10 minutes and serve warm.
