Salsa Verde / Mild Green Sauce

I've been making this salsa at home lately that everyone seems to like. You know it's a winner when EVERYONE likes it, so I thought it would be a good idea to share it.

4 tomatillos
2 jalapenos (add more if you want it spicy, but two will ensure it's mild)
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 bunch of cilantro
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Boil the tomatillos until they're cooked through, around 8 minutes. Do not throw out the boiled water. Place all ingredients in a blender. Add some of the boiled water, just a little so you can add more later if needed. Blend until desired consistency is reached. If you'd like it more runny, add more boiled water. Refrigerate until it chills and enjoy.

This can be served over tacos, eggs, quesadillas, chilaquiles and even for dipping tortilla chips.
