Tomatillo Salsa

Tomatillo Salsa
10 tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1 jalapeno pepper, sliced and seeds removed
1 onion, quartered
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
2 limes, juiced
Salt to taste
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (for a smoky flavor or use 2 jalapenos)

In a saucepan add the tomatillos, jalapeno, onion, vinegar and water to cover. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium and cook until the tomatillos are soft, about 10 minutes. Drain and put the vegetables in a food processor, add the cumin, cilantro, lime juice, chipotle pepper and salt.  Blend until slightly chunky.
