Tomatillos look like green cherry tomatoes in papery husks, but they have a lemon-like taste. Buy firm ones with husks attached.
1/2 pound fresh tomatillos
1/4 cup diced purple onion
1/4 cup chopped sweet yellow pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon unsweetened orange juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
How to Make It
Remove husks from tomatillos; rinse and dice. Combine diced tomatillo, onion, and remaining ingredients in a small bowl; stir well. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes. Serve with chicken or as a dip with no-oil baked tortilla chips.
