Easy Creamy Salsa Verde

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope everyone is having tacos for dinner tonight to celebrate! I also hope that there is a margarita in your near future. I know that there is with me!
Me and Jose are like this*.
Well, we used to be. He’s not as nice to me as he used to be.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo here is a seriously kick butt recipe for Salsa Verde. I made it myself. I was trying to recreate the salsa verde I got at a farmer’s market last week and I think I hit the nail on the head.
Salsa Verde. Good on:
chips
tortillas
tacos
sliced pork
burgers
hot dogs
eggs
toast
ice cream
car bumpers

Well, maybe not those last two things, but the rest for sure!
Try not to eat it all in one sitting!

Salsa Verde
1/2 cup cilantro
3-5 tomatillos ( 3 big ones or 5 small ones)
one small onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
