Hot sauce (Salsa)

I get asked over and over again to make this hot sauce by my family (mostly my daughter Brittany) and friends. This is so easy and so healthy for you. Trust me, make this salsa you and everyone else will love it.

4 or 5 large tomatoes (whole)
1 large jalapeno (if you like less heat then make it a small one)
5 garlic cloves - peeled
4 or 5 tomatillos
1 bunch of cilantro
Salt to taste
splash of vegetable oil to coat pan

Place the tomatoes, jalapeno, and garlic cloves and oil in a saute pan. Saute over medium with lid on until the skin of the tomatoes are starting to pull away from the tomatoes. Flip over the veggies once and continue to saute until they appear soft.  If you notice that there isn't enough oil, then feel free to add more.

In another pot you will fill halfway with water. Peel the tomatillos and rinse and place in pot and bring to a boil.  The tomatillos will change to a brighter green which indicates that they are done. Usually by the time the other tomatoes are done so will these be done.

In a food processor or blender place half of the (including the tomatillos and cilantro) ingredients cutting the tomatoes into quarters or half.  Do the next batch until all gone.  Pour into large bowl.  Add salt if needed. I always add about a tsp or more.

Serve with chips.

NOTE: Tomatillos are found in often times close to where they sell garlic and peppers.  They have a skin on them which makes them hard to identify but if you can't find them as the produce department and they will point them out.

Last in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
