Tomatillo Crema

Primarily, I use this zesty cream to top my Simple Fish Tacos, but it can be utilized with other dishes. It can be used as a chip dip for you next get together, or to add some zest to your morning eggs and bacon.

Side Note: Tomatillos are usually very sticky, so make to sure to wash these little green tomatoes thoroughly, as well as all produce used in this recipe.
