Afternoon Treat for All: Recipe
The kids and I made a quick saute of onion and bell peppers and added some fresh cilantro at the end. Then we heated up some black beans and together we made a few quesadillia with Mexi-Style shredded cheese. We all sat down for a 3:00 p.m. treat. and a chat. I steered the kids away from the salsa but man was it GOOD!
Roasted Garlic and Tomatillo Salsa
1 large garlic clove, peeled
4 large tomatillos, husked, washed and halved
2 small chipotle chilies, from the can
juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 yellow bell pepper, coarsely chopped
In a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat, place the tomatillo halves cut-side down along with the garlic clove and cook about 4 minutes - turn and cook 4 more minutes on the other side. Place the tomatillos and garlic into a food processor along with 1/4 cup water, pepper, lime and chipotle chilies. Puree until all ingredients are a smooth consistency.
