Salsa Verde is fantastic, a very green salsa made simply from combining the aforementioned ingredients with a pinch of salt, white vinegar and a little water, and then allowing it all to simmer for an hour. After that, a quick whizz with the immersion blender turns soft chunks into a smooth puree. You can then can this mixture or put it into freezer-safe jars and store it in the freezer until needed. I love adding this to my Green Rabbit Chili, or using it in posole-inspired Mexican Layered Lasagna.
If you wind up with a lot of tomatillos, and too little time, you can always freeze the tomatillos whole (after removing their papery husks and giving them a rinse) and process them later. I've made a great Salsa Verde in the middle of winter, using the crockpot set to warm overnight.
