Tomatillo Salsa


Yields about 3 cups.


  • 30 tomatillos , husked, washed, blackened (stick them under the broiler until the skins start to blister and pop), and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic , roasted (stick them on the broiler pan with the tomatillos for a few minutes)
  • 1 bunch cilantro , chopped
  • 3 chilies in adobo sauce , plus 1½ T adobo sauce (use more or less to control the heat)
  • ¾ t salt
  • ¾ t sugar


  1. Whirl all of the ingredients in the food processor until it's not too chunky, but not too smooth – about 10 long pulses do the trick.
