When You're Hot, You're Hot . . . When You're Snot, You're Snot

You may have figured out from the post title what this recipe is going to look like.  Yeah, it looks like that but man, oh, man is it good.  It's total tongue bliss when served with Tres Rios tortilla chips if you can get a hold of 'em.  They're made in Pennsylvania and are available in Motown at the Mountain People's Market @ $2.25/bag.  You can't  beat that with a stick!  If you are a true salsa lover, I'm guessing a batch of this salsa won't make it 'til morning.

Salsa Verde
(aka Tomatilla Salsa)
(aka  . . . you'll see)

12-14 tomatillos
1 hot pepper (ie. jalapeno)
1 clove garlic
1/4 onion
3/4 t. salt
1/2 bunch cilantro, stems removed

-Peel, wash and boil the  tomatillos with the pepper until soft, about 20 minutes.
-Drain the tomatillos and pepper and place in a food processor or blender.
-Add the remaining ingredients and blend to desired consistency.
-Best served slightly warm with your favorite chips or wrap.
Note: If you are a hot pepper wimp, make sure to remove the seeds and membranes of the pepper.  If you are gaga for hot pepper heat, try using a habanero.  Booyah:)
FYI, I am told this salsa freezes well.  It's also good to know that when cold, this salsa becomes gelatinous.
