Did you read our resolutions post? This year I am going to make an effort to try new things by setting forth on a new culinary adventure each week, selecting one new food item to cook or bake with. This week, I picked Tomatillos!

I first heard about these little green tomatoes in 8th grade from my middle school Spanish teacher, but I never dared to get one while grocery shopping. But yesterday, I picked out three little guys and made creamy tomatillo dressing to use in avocado chicken burritos...meaning I doubled up on pins from Pinterest, and recipes with avocados. Give it up for healthy fats! Am I right, Dr. OZ?!

I am excited to make this dressing more often.... using it as a dip, on salads, in quesadillas, on enchiladas & etc... and to try using tomatillos in other ways this week!  Do you know of any good ways to use tomatillos?? Let me know!

What uncommon ingredients do you love? I want to hear from you on what I should be trying...below is my brainstorming list...tell me how you use these ingredients or if you have things you think I should try!
