Salsa verde

A staple here in México

(General disclaimer pics taken are from my phone, I'm not a pro photog)

1 Tablespoon salt (to blend with boiled ingredients)
1 Kilo/2 pounds of Tomatillos (Green tomatoes)
4 garlic cloves peeled
1/2 medium sized white onion
handful of cilantro
2 jalapeños (or whatever chili you feel comfortable with)
big pot filled 3/4 with water

You boil all ingredients listed above, until the bright green tomatillos change to a muted olive green, like this:

Drain the pot  and blend all the cooked ingredients adding salt.
Voila! You have green salsa.

^This is how it looks blended.

Pictured above is how I ate it :Chilaquiles verdes con pavo
