Tomatillo Green Salsa
What You'll Need
8 small tomatillos (about 1 pound)
½ white onion, cut in half
1½ tsp minced garlic (about 3 small cloves)
1 jalapeño, halved and seeded
⅓ cup packed chopped cilantro
1 (4-oz) can chopped mild green chili peppers
½ Tbsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper, to taste
Seeds from jalapeño (for spice)
How to Make It
1 Preheat the broiler. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2 Prep the tomatillos: remove their husks, wash them, and cut them in half.
3 Place the tomatillos and onion face down on the prepared baking sheet. Add the garlic and jalapeño to the baking sheet.
4 Broil for 5 to 7 minutes or until everything is evenly charred.
5 In a blender or food processor, pulse the charred ingredients, cilantro, and chili peppers until the salsa is smooth.
After removing the husks from the tomatillos, they’ll feel a little sticky. Give them a good wash before broiling.
Adding this to guacamole is very tasty if you’re looking for a variation.
