    I just made this & LOVE it! The cilantro & lime juice add so much. I included just a smidge of garlic too. I'm off to a meeting & am going to get some tortilla chips on the way so I can share it! - 10/24/10

    I use a recipe very similar except I use the green tomatos from the end of the season and add 2 cloves of garlic per jar. Roast the tomatoes, onions, garlic and peppers under the broiler for about 5 minutes untili blackened. It really adds a different flavor - 12/17/12

    Very Good Salsa! I increased the jalapenos, added 2T fresh oregano and some garlic. To save time, I put the tomatillos, onion, garlic, cilantro, and oregano in the food processor before cooking. I then transferred it to a pan, added the remaining ingrediants. Simmered for 20 min. after boil. - 1/11/09

    1/2 cup jalapenos with seeds? Really??? I'd just DIE!!
    I use 6 Serrano peppers and up to 2 SEEDED jalapenos, to taste.

    This is great! I couldn't find any fresh jalepenos at the store so I used a serrano pepper instead. I'm don't care for a lot of heat, so I just used one pepper and took the seeds out. Came out perfect. Thanks for sharing! - 10/19/08
