salsa verde cumin dip torilla victoria gourmet recipes

When I made this the first time and tasted it, I wondered why I didn't make this sooner. Seriously this cannot be any easier or more delicious. A great dip for tortilla chips, condiment for tacos and/or sauce for enchiladas. 


1 tablespoon Cumin
6 tomatillos
1 jalapeno, rough chopped (seeds removed for less spicy sauce)
1 green bell pepper, seeded, roughly chopped
1 large sweet onion, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 bunch cilantro
Juice of 2 limes
