Got Green Tomatoes?

When life gives you green tomatoes, make green tomato salsa! and Invite a neighbor over to help...and drink champagne while you are at it:) why is short!!

Green Tomato Salsa Verde

¼ cup olive oil
1-2 large onions, chopped (about 5 cups)
6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
2-4 hot peppers, such as jalapenos or cayenne
3 lbs. roughly cut green tomatoes
½ cup roughly chopped fresh oregano leaves, packed
½ cup roughly chopped parsley
1 tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 cups chicken broth
Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat; sauté onion, garlic and peppers for 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring for 15 minutes until softened. Add herbs, spices, seasonings and broth. simmer for 35-45 minutes. Pulse in processor until desired consistency or use an emulsion blender.

Serve over eggs, with enchiladas or anything cheesy and Mexican!

We have lots of green tomatoes in the garden and unfortunately, then wont have a chance to ripen in time.

Homegrown peppers!!

Quote of the evening: while chopping onions, Leann says, "I'm going blind with emotion!!"

We had the sauce over homemade burritos (from my freezer) and Greek yogurt-I like mine extra saucy!!!
The sauce is also amazing on eggs and egg dishes, like breakfast chilaquiles! as a dip over goat cheese, as a soup base, for making green chile pork for tacos...the list can go on!
