Tomatillo Salsa & Easy Chicken Tacos

Tomatillos have been in abundance at the farmer’s market (even here in the heartland.) I bought a whole basket of them for $2 last week. Having the tomatillos so available made it a perfect time to make this salsa and have chicken tacos! I made a cheese quesadilla for dinner tonight and dipped them in this salsa . . . YUM! My son, Matt, gets the credit for this recipe. He’s a great cook and everyone has been telling me that I need to put it on my blog. So here it is.

Salsa Ingredients
6 tomatillos, husk removed and cut in half
1-2 jalapenos, stem removed
2 thick slices of a large red onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 T. honey
2 T. olive oil
Juice of two limes
A handful of fresh cilantro
Salt & pepper to taste

Grill the tomatillos, jalapeno, red onion, and garlic until cooked through and slightly blackened.
