This recipe is simple and delicious!

Green Enchilada Sauce

  • 1/4 cup EVOO or Avocado Oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 3 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 pound tomatillos
  • 1 (4oz) can green chiles (or sliced jalapeños for an extra kick!)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Few leaves of fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder

Heat oil in a pad over medium heat. Add the onions until translucent. Add the garlic and saute for about 3 more minutes.

Add the broth, tomatillos, green chiles, jalapeños and seasonings. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the tomatillos are soft. Remove from heat and cool.

Transfer to a blender and blend until you like the consistency of the sause.
