Green Tomato Sauce (Salsa De Tomatillo Verde)

This unusual sauce is a popular accompaniment to tortilla dishes in Mexico, particularly tacos and enchiladas, but it could also be used as an accompaniment to roast or grilled {broiled) meat, particularly lamb. Canned green tomatoes are available from Mexican provision stores.

ingredients

about 725 ml (25 fl oz) 3 cups
2 Tbs Vegetable oil
1 Large onion, chopped
450 g (1 lb) Canned Mexican green tomatoes
2 Canned green chillis, drained and chopped
1 Tbs Finely chopped coriander leaves
250 ml (8 fl oz) 1 cup Chicken stock

method

1. Heat the oil in a small frying-pan. Add the onion and fry until it is soft. Remove from the heat.

2. Put the onion, tomatoes and can juice, chillis and coriander leaves into a blender and blend to a smooth puree. Pour into a saucepan and set over low heat. Gradually add the chicken stock, stirring constantly. Cook until the sauce comes to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce for 5 minutes.

3. The sauce is now ready to be added to other ingredients, or to be served.
