I watched What Would Brian Boitano Make the other day on the Food Network and thought his recipe for green salsa looked pretty tasty. So I gave it a try for dinner last night to go along with our shredded beef tacos...
2 poblano peppers
2 avocados, halved, pitted and diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1/4 bunch cilantro, leaves chopped
1 tablespoon white vinegar
Pinch salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Broil the peppers and tomatillos until they get brown and bubbly. Turn the peppers every couple of minutes. The original recipe didn't say to broil the tomatillos but l thought, why not!
Steam the peppers under plastic wrap for 10 minutes, then peel skin and remove the stem and seeds.
Add the peppers along with the remaining salsa ingredients to the blender.
The final result:
It's kind of a mix between salsa verde and guacamole. Yum!
To complete our meal, I made Cilantro-Lime rice. It's so good and so easy! Just add the juice of one lime, a tablespoon or two of butter, and a lot of cilantro to cooked rice. Mmmmmm....
Throw in some seasoned pinto beans and you have a delicious meal!
