Tomatillo Inspiration

It's a snowy and windy night in Kirkland, and we've had a visit from our raccoon family. In the middle of it all, I was cleaning tomatillos (pronounced tow-ma-ti-yos) when inspiration hit me.

Aren't the tomatillos beautiful on the cutting board?

Since I'm posting, I might as well show you how these fruits can turn into a super yummy, homemade sauce. Cut and place the following on non-stick foil on baking sheets: tomatillos, sweet peppers, jalapenos, and red onions. Bake on 375F (190C) for about 30 minutes to roast.

Then, pour the produce and juice into the food processor along with plenty of fresh cilantro, a healthy bit of salt, and some lemon/lime juice. Process. Approximately 45 seconds later, you have fresh enchilada sauce ready for enchiladas. YUM.
