Tomatillos or Mexican green tomatoes are very fresh and extremely low in fat and calories.


  • 1 1/4 pounds tomatillos (12 large)
  • 8 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Discard the husks and stems from the tomatillos. Bring water to a boil in a Dutch oven. Add tomatillos; cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes or until tender; drain. Place tomatillos in a blender; process until smooth. Stir in cilantro and salt. Cover and chill.
  2. Note: Substitute 4 (11-ounce) cans tomatillos if you can't find them fresh. drain the canned tomatillos,and purée with cilantro. Omit the salt; canned tomatillos contain added sodium.
