Ending the tomatoes

There were 2 things this year that went crazy in my garden- the first was tomatoes and so as the nights get cold for tomatoes, there was some significant culling going on recently.
There are some plants that i will keep for Indian summer ripening, but most i have removed.

My first thing to do with Green tomatoes is a Salsa:

Salsa Verde
1 Quart Green tomatoes
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon salt
2 Chipolte peppers, diced
1 cup Green onions, diced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

Clean and then boil the tomatoes till just soft with salt
Drain and run tomatoes through the food mill, discarding skins

add all other ingredients and simmer to reduce the volume about 1/2.
Chill and serve with what ever you want, i will probably do enchiladas tonight with them.
