Mary’s Roasted Tomatillo Salsa


6/30/2020 – Mary made this with fresh tomatillos from our garden. It was really good.

  • 8 ounces (3 to 4 medium) tomatillos, husked and rinsed
  • Fresh hot large jalapeno with seeds
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 6 sprigs of fresh cilantro
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • Salt


  • Roast the tomatillos, chile(s), and garlic under the broiler on high until blotchy black and softening.
  • Flip them over and roast the other side. Cool, then transfer everything to a blender including the juice from the tomatillos.
  • Add the cilantro and blend to a coarse puree. Scoop into a serving dish.
  • Add the onion.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Add water if needed for the desired consistency.
