Steak Taco Night

Salsa Verde ingredients:
chopped onion
chopped cilantro
2 cups water
minced serrano pepper
minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin

Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover.

Beans and Corn ingredients:
chopped onion
chopped bell peppers
black beans, cooked until soft and rinsed
frozen corn, thawed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
2 minced serrano peppers
1 lime, quartered

After tomatillos have simmered 10-15 minutes (until soft), puree the tomatillos with water in batches.

Saute the onions until they start to turn clear, then add peppers and spices and saute until peppers start to soften.

Add remaining ingredients and simmer 20-30 minutes. I like to squeeze the lime wedges over the pan and put the wedges in, cause I really like lime.

Toast corn tortillas in a dry pan.

Slice another lime, and combined with the meat I prepared yesterday (no pictures, sorry) and the rest of the cilantro, I have steak tacos with salsa verde.
