Tomatillo Salsa

How to make Tomatillo Salsa.


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh tomatillos
  • 1 white onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • Cut onion into three big slices.
  • Heat a cast iron frying pan or comal over medium heat.
  • Dry roast onions, jalepenos and garlic cloves in the comal until lightly charred.
  • If you don’t want your salsa too hot, scrape out the ribs and seeds after roasting the jalepenos.
  • Bring a pot of well salted water to boil. Remove husks and cook tomatillos until they turn pale – around 4 minutes.
  • Combine all ingredients except oil and chicken or vegetable stock in a blender or food processor and puree.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan.
  • Add pureed salsa to the pan and fry over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes.It will spatter when you add the salsa so be ready.
  • Reduce heat, add chicken stock and simmer for 10 minutes.
