Dynamite Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

August 2, 2012
Roasted tomatillo salsa is great on just about anything.  Tomatillos are roasted in the oven before being blended with chiles, cilantro, garlic, and lime.  Ideally, you'll want a food processor or blender to make this recipe. You can find tomatillos (they look like a green tomato) in most supermarkets but if you can't find them, check your local Latin market. Pour your tomatillo salsa over your tacos, a piece of grilled steak, mix it with your eggs for breakfast or enjoy it the traditional way with chips.
1 pound tomatillos (about 15), husked, rinsed, and roughly chopped
3 serrano chiles, with seeds
3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves (1 bunch)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree.
An all-purpose salsa verde; especially good with tortilla chips, most seafood, and eggs.
Yield: About 2 cups.

Thanks for the great roasted tomatillo salsa recipe! As a Mexican food lover, I have always enjoyed cooking <a href="http://www.caferio.com">traditional Mexican food</a> and love when I find great new recipes to try. I paired this delicious tomatillo salsa with traditional Mexican tamales and it was fantastic! This is definitely a recipe I will use again in the future on my tamales and other Mexican dishes. Thanks again for the great recipe and keep on cooking!
