RECIPE: Tomatillo Salsa #garden #homemade #verde

Fresh tomatillo salsa is one thing I live for every year. I plant tomatillos in my garden and eagerly wait for September to come when they are finally ripe and ready to pick. If James and I don’t immediately devour it all with chips, I like to make chicken enchiladas or even this delicious soup.

Ingredients
  • 20-30 tomatillos, sliced in half
  • 3 jalapeños, stems cut off
  • 5 whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Turn your oven broiler on high and line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Arrange the tomatillos, cut side down, on the baking sheet. (I filled the entire baking sheet with tomatillos). Place in oven about 4" below broiler, and cook 4-6 minutes or until tomatillos begin to blacken.
  3. Remove from heat and transfer to a blender or food processor. If using a food processor, be careful not to overfill (I made my salsa in two batches).
  4. Pour liquid off baking sheet and place the jalapeños and garlic cloves back into the oven and broil for another 4-6 minutes.
  5. Add onion, lime, roasted jalapeños and garlic, and cilantro. Blend until mostly smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
