Recipe

I absolutely love salsa of almost any kind and have started making my own at home because it just tastes so much better than the jarred kind you can buy in stores. This is a fairly traditional salsa verde but with the roasted tomatillos, jalapenos, onions, and garlic it adds a great smoky quality. This is also a salsa I love to jar and give out as gifts.

Directions

  1. Turn on your broiler and get it nice and hot.
  2. Place the whole tomatillos, garlic, jalapenos, and quartered onion pieces in a shallow baking dish and roast under the broiler for about 10 minutes, turning half way, until vegetables are charred on the outside.
  3. Take them out of the oven and let them cool for about 10 minutes. Pull the stems from the jalapenos and remove the peel the garlic, it should just squeeze out. Dump everything into a blender. Make sure to also add the juices from the baking dish that seeped out during cooking!
  4. Add the cilantro,salt, and juice of one lime and blend until well blended and then your salsa is ready to eat. It should keep for between 5-7 days, although it never lasts that long in my house.
