Salsa salsa salsa! Nothing like a simple a perfect combination of Mexican spices, flavors, and cajones to inspire some sexy time. We got the right amount of flavor and heat without sending anyone home crying for their mommies. And this will come in handy as you lay out your finest game. I find that this recipe is all that and a bag of chips. Tortilla chips. I hope your readers enjoy as much I have enjoyed the fairer sex of Colorado!

Ingredients (serves a party)
1. 1 bunch cilantro
2. 1 bunch green onions
3. Salt to taste
4. 2 limes
5. 2 lbs fresh tomatillos
6. 6 peeled garlic cloves
7. 3 Serrano CHILIES
Bring a pot of water to a roaring boil. Chop away the Serrano chili stems and toss them in the pot along with the garlic and tomatillos. Blanche them all until the tomatillos soften (approx 5-7 min). Drain the water.
Transfer the boiled tomatillos, garlic, Serrano chilies to a blender or food processor and puree. Pour the liquefied goods into a bowl. Roughly chop up the green onions and cilantro and add to the bowl. Slice and squeeze in the limejuice, salt it up, mix it all together, and refrigerate until they cool (approx 30 min). Serve with chips or on top of any number of fine ENTREES or TACOS.
