Roasted Tomatillo Salsa


  • 1 pint tomatillos de-husked, washed and halved
  • 1 onion cut into chunks
  • 5-6 garlic cloves
  • 1-2 jalapenos
  • a handful of cilantro
  • 1 lime


  • Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • Line a rimmed cookie sheet with foil and lay out the tomatillos and half the garlic and onions on it. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • When it's roasted and cooled down enough to handle, squeeze the garlic out of their skins and pour the whole roasted mess (tomatillos, garlic and onions) into a blender. Add the rest of the raw garlic, the other half of the onion, a handful of cilantro, a pinch of salt, some jalapeno and a bit of lime juice. Blend until it's all combined and taste. It might need a pinch of sugar to balance the tartness.
  • Delicious (and it just gets better after it sits for a little while) on burritos or chips.
