Im not a huge fan of Mexican food, I dont like the heat. Making salsa verde with the tomatillos was kinda out of the question since I dont eat chilis. When in doubt, make soup!
Tomato Vegetable Soup:
3 tbs margaine/butter
1/4c scallions, minced
3 onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 oz tomato paste
2 (32oz) boxes beef stock
4 c water
1 c carrots, chopped
1 c celery, chopped
3 tomatillos, diced
In a large, heavy bottom pot, heat margraine. Saute scallions, garlic and onion until carmelized, stirring often to keep from sticking.
Add tomato paste and stir well.
Add stock and water. Bring to a boil.
Add carrots, celery and tomatillos. Simmer 15 minutes.
**for a little extra something add cooked rice or quinoa just before serving
