Tomatillos are those little things that have begun to appear in supermarket produce sections that resemble green tomatoes wrapped in brown paper. This unique and versatile sauce can be prepared with either canned or fresh tomatillos.
- Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil until the onion is clear.
- Add the tomatillos, chiles, jalapeño, and green tomato (if using), and pour the entire mixture into a blender or food processor.
- Pulse to make a coarse purée.
- Return mixture to pan.
- Add the sugar and salt, and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes until sauce is thick.
Note: Stores well in the refrigerator. Use with many recipes, including Chicken Flautas.
