Have you guys been to my friend Liz’s site yet? She’s a mama of two who blogs about healthy authentic food with global flavors. I freaking love her because she’s the real deal in every way; Liz tells it how it is and keeps herself authentic and real. We’ve been friends for years and every single time we’re together we giggle over the most ridiculous things (including that one time she had someone deliver Buffalo Wild Wings to my hotel room).

Liz and I went to Mexico last year on a fabulous trip and so of course I was incredibly excited when she asked me to share a recipe from her new eCookbook, Food From Our Ancestors: The Ultimate Mexican Sunday Dinner. You guys know how much I love Mexican food, and better yet when it’s authentic.

  • 40 to matillos (green)
  • 12 whole serrano peppers, stems removed
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 medium onion
  • salt to your liking


  1. Remove the shell from the tomatillos and rinse well. Place in a large pot along with the peppers and cover with water 2/3 of the way up the pot. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Simmer until tomatillos start to crack and split, roughly 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Place cooked tomatillos and serranos in a blender along with all the cooking liquid. Add cilantro, garlic, onion and salt to taste. Blend until you’ve reached desired thickness.
