Tomatillo Salsa


Tomatillo Salsa


  • Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 lbs tomatillos* husked
  • 1 jalapeno** stem removed (before or after roasting)
  • 2/3 cup chopped yellow onion rinsed under water to remove harsh bite
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp sugar to taste
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 Tbsp water then more as desired


  • Instructions
  • Move oven rack about 4-inch below broiler element, preheat broiler to high heat.
  • Place tomatillos and jalapeno on a baking sheet then place in oven and roast about 4 – 5 minutes until charred on top (keep a close on on things as they can char pretty quickly – especially the pepper).
  • Rotate veggies to opposite side and roast until charred on opposite side, about 3 – 5 minutes longer.
  • Slice pepper then add to a food processor along with onion, cilantro, garlic, salt, sugar, lime juice, water and tomatillos (and any juices on pan).
  • Pulse several times to a coarse puree. Stir in more water to thin if desired. Chill through in refrigerator in an airtight container.
