Recipe for Green Chile and Tomatillo Salsa. To spice things up feel free to add hot chiles or hot sauce to this recipe. Use to cook with, to dip chips or for making tamales.


  • 3 pounds fresh tomatillos
  • 1 can (26 ounces) mild green chiles
  • 2 onions, quartered
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

  2. Put tomatillos, onion, garlic and green chiles (along with liquid from the can) in a saucepan. Add enough water just to cover. Bring water to a boil, then decrease heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Cool slightly. Strain, reserving the liquid.
  3. Transfer tomatillo mixture to a blender or food processor and puree, adding just enough liquid to give it a thick, smooth consistency. Season with salt and pepper and let cool. After cooling, mix in chopped fresh cilantro.
