Ingredients

  • pounds tomatillos husks removed, rinsed
  • 2 garlic cloves unpeeled
  • ¼ white onion
  • 1 to 2 serrano chiles stemmed
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried piquín chiles
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves and upper part of stems
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or coarse sea salt

To Prepare

  • Place the tomatillos, garlic, onion, and serranos on a small baking sheet. Place under the broiler and char or roast for about 10 minutes, flipping as needed in between, until charred on the outsides and completely softened. Remove from the oven.
  • Alternatively, you can char or roast on a preheated comal set over medium-low heat or directly on the grill.
  • Once cool enough to handle, peel the garlic cloves. Place tomatillos, peeled garlic, onion, and serranos along with piquín chiles, cilantro, and salt into a blender and puree to your desired consistency (I like it to still be able to see the tomatillo seeds).

    Why do green tomatoes have a bitter taste sometimes. What can I do to fix that? Thanks

      Tomatillos are supposed to be tart, not bitter. Maybe they were not fresh enough 🙁

    This is delicious! I ordered some piquin chiles online to make this, I have a bumper crop of tomatillos to use up. This is great as is on chips, and I’m planning to try it on the tacos rojas tonight….been busy so I figured I’d make that in stages. The piquin chiles are really good, this is a simple salsa to make and it’s awesome.
