Roasted Tomatillo Verde Salsa

photo-20

I’ll never buy green salsa again ’cause it’s so easy to make!

Most people think tomatillos are little green tomatoes, but they are a fruit more related to the gooseberry family. Buy mature tomatillos that have filled their papery-thin husks and are medium-firm.

Make this medium hot salsa for any Tex-Mex buffet. Use it on it’s own with chips or to top off tacos and burritos. Stays well in the refrigerator in a glass jar with a tight lid.

6 tomatillos, husks removed
1/4 cup cilantro
1/2 red onion
1/4 jalepeno pepper
Juice of 1 lime
Salt & pepper to taste

Place tomatillos on a heated grill and turn until slightly charred on sides and softened, being careful not to overheat so they become mushy. Cool slightly and place in a high speed blender with the remaining ingredients and puree.
