Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Courses: Sauces
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozTomatillos - husked and washed
6   Garlic cloves
2   Jalapeno chiles - stemmed and seeded
1   Cilantro, leaves only - (large bunch)
3/4 cup 177mlWater
1 teaspoon 5mlSalt
1   Freshly-ground black pepper

Recipe Instructions

Preheat the broiler. Place the tomatillos, garlic and jalapeno on a baking tray and broil, turning frequently, until evenly charred -- about 15 minutes (keep the garlic from burning by tucking it underneath the tomatillos). Set aside to cool.

In a food processor, combine the roasted vegetables with the cilantro and water and puree until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add the salt and pepper and serve immediately or store in the refrigerator up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 weeks.

This recipe yields 2 1/2 cups of salsa.
