It’s that time of the year to see tomatillos in your CSA share – these green tomato look-a-likes are covered in a thin layer of green peel. Under that peel, a sticky sap designed to ward off the most bothersome pests in the garden.
Tomatillos are usually always used to make salsa verde ~ but sometimes they can be used to make a rich, delicious ground beef for tacos or taco nachos. Yum!
This recipe is super easy and no fuss – if you don’t have an Instant Pot simply pull out your Dutch Oven, and let the tomatillos simmer until they are soft and mashable. A simple potato masher works great to break up the tomatoes and ground beef at the end of the cooking process, and feel free to add your own twist on spices.
When finished, the ground beef and tomatillos will simmer in a flavorful broth – use immediately in tacos, or pile on top of nachos alongside shredded cheese or serve it up for breakfast – chips, layered with tomatillo ground beef, sauteed peppers and potatoes, and topped with an egg over easy.
