Ingredients

    8 medium Tomatillos
    1 pepper Jalapeno Peppers
    Juice of 1 Lime
    1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions, raw
    20 grams Cilantro, raw
    0.5 tsp Salt

Tips

For additional flavor, roast the jalapeno pepper over a gas burner or grill. Otherwise, a few drops of liquid smoke can give the salsa a smokey punch.


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (220 C)
2. Peel the husks off the tomatillos and rinse them under water to remove the stickiness
3. Slice the tomatillos in half, cutting them into the upper and lower half, not from top to bottom
4. Cut the onion into quarters
5. Put the tomatillos and chunks of onion into a roasting pan (spray the pan with a non-stick spray) and roast them for 20 minutes
6. After roasting, put the tomatillos, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and jalapeno in a food processor and process until smooth.
7. Add salt to taste.

You can decrease the heat by removing the seeds and veins from the jalapeno.
