Roasted Tomatillo & Jalapeno Salsa


This salsa is delicious & would go great on tacos or enchiladas or anything you might add a regular salsa to.  I dry roasted the tomatillos & jalapenos on my grill but it can be achieved in a dry frying pan or in your broiler.  

Roasted Tomatillo & Jalapeno Salsa


2 lbs tomatillos - papery skin removed

4 jalapenos (less if you are sensitive to spice)

1 small onion

4 garlic cloves

1 cup fresh cilantro

4 oregano sprigs or 1 tsp dry oregano

1 tsp cumin

salt to taste


Char the tomatillos & jalapenos until they are black.  Put in a plastic bag & let them sweat a few minutes.  Under cool running water, slip the skins off everything, remove the stems & seed the jalapenos.

Simply blend all the ingredients to a puree.
