3 cups salsa
  • 1 pound tomatillos husked and rinsed
  • 1 chile de arbol or more to taste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves and upper part of stems
  • 1 thin slice of white onion or about 2 tablespoons roughly chopped white onion
To Prepare
  • In a medium saucepan, place the tomatillos, chile de arbol and garlic clove. If you are unsure of how much heat you want, add 2 chiles de arbol. Cover generously with water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked and tomatillos are mushy, but not coming apart.
  • Transfer the tomatillos, garlic and 1 chile de arbol to a blender. Add the cilantro, onion and salt. Puree until smooth. Taste for salt and adjust if need be. If you want more heat, add the second chile de arbol.
