We often serve this tomatillo salsa with pork carnitas tacos. Yum!
Adapted from Simply Recipes
- 1 ½ lbs tomatillos - they look like little green tomatoes with husks around them
- ½ cup white onion
- ¾ cup cilantro - leaves only
- 1 tablespoon lime juice - freshly squeezed
- 1 jalapeño - seeded and roughly chopped (you can substitute a serrano pepper)
Preheat broiler on high.
Peel and discard husks off tomatillos. Rinse and cut tomatillos in half. Place cut side down on foil or parchment lined baking sheet. Broil for 5 – 7 minutes until skin is lightly blackened.
Puree tomatillos and rest of ingredients together including onion, cilantro, lime, and pepper using a food processor, blender, or hand immersion blender until ingredients are finely chopped and mixed.
Cool in refrigerator until ready to serve.
