Tomatillo Salsa

I'm pretty amazed that something so simple can be so good!! I made this to go with the chiles rellenos recipe and it was great. It was runny, but not to the point of being watery. I was lucky enough to be able to make this entirely from home-grown ingredients. Tomatillos can be hard to find but they grow like weeds (FYI, in case you are a big tomatillo fan you should totally just grow them).

Chiles Rellenos

Thanks for lunch, Chow.com! These turned out great! I didn't have monterey jack cheese, so I used ricotta. I think these would be an excellent Sunday brunch item (though they would be tough to make for a crowd). I had a ton of tomatillos in my garden so I made the smooth tomatillo salsa (link at top of article). It was a great combo.

It's the old-fashioned way, by actual fermentation rather than pickling with loads of vinegar (formerly known as "quick pickles").
