Tomatillo Salsa

Tomatillos are nightshades and their flavor is slightly tart and similar in texture to a tomato. Fresh tomatillos are slightly sticky from their husk, which should be removed before washing and storing to prolong freshness


  • 1 pound Tomatillos husked
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 num Serrano/jalapeno seeded
  • 1/4 Yellow Onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro
  • 1 tsp kosher salt regular can be used
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp cumin optional


  • Add the tomatillos, garlic, chiles, onion, cilantro, and salt into a blender. Blend until it has a smooth consistency.
  • In a saucepan on medium-low heat, heat up the oil. Pour the blended salsa into the pan and cook while occasionally stirring for 10 minutes.
  • Taste the salsa and add salt and adjust the seasonings. Can serve hot or cold.
