 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      Ounces        tomatillos
    2      Pounds        tomatoes
    1      Cup           onion -- chopped
      1/2  Cup           green onions -- chopped
    1      Tablespoon    garlic -- minced
      1/2  Cup           canned green chiles
      1/2  Cup           jalapeno chiles -- some seeds removed
    2      Teaspoons     ground red chile
      1/2  Teaspoon      ground cumin
      1/2  Teaspoon      salt
      1/2  Cup           cilantro -- minced
    3      Tablespoons   white wine vinegar
 
 Soak tomatillos in warm water and remove dry husks.  Dip tomatoes in
 boiling water for 30 sec.  or hold over a gas flame and char.  Remove
 skins and squeeze out seeds.  (I ignored this and just opened a large
 can of stewed tomatoes.)
 
 ROUGHLY puree everything. Simmer in an open 2 quart saucepan for 5
 minutes to blend flavors and help preserve the salsa.  Salsa keeps
 well.  If you want salsa even hotter, just add more jalapenos or keep
 more seeds.  (I didn't have jalapenos, so just added some cayenne and
 some tabasco to taste.  I also found that about a tablespoon of lime
 juice was nice.)
 
 Obviously not a gourmet recipe.  But it turned out very nice, and solves
 the problem of what to do with the other 90% of the cilantro I buy every
 week or two.
