    Mami J's Note:

    This is a very traditional salsa from the region of Jalisco. It tastes best when the tomatillos are small and tinged with purple. It goes great with any meat or seafood, especially good with carne asada. The yield and number of servings is approximate.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    • 226.79 g tomatillo
    • 1 small garlic clove
    • 2-3 dried chilies (chiles de arbol)
    • 59.14 ml water
    • 7.39 ml salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel and rinse the tomatillos. Heat a griddle or a small nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the tomatillos and broil, turning often with a spoon, until the skins are blackened and the tomatillos are very soft, do this over low heat so that they don't burn. They wont all be ready at the same time, so remove the ones that are ready before the rest. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Add the chiles to the griddle, turning the over constantly, until they darken, again being careful not to burn them.
    3. 3
      Remove the chiles and put them in a blender with the tomatillos, the garlic, the water and the salt. Puree just until no large pieces remain, it should have some texture. Taste before serving and adjust the salt to your taste. If it comes out too hot you can always add more tomatillos.

      This is a great recipe! DH loves the green sauce and he really enjoyed this. Great fresh taste; will probably add 1 more chili to up the spice a bit next time. Thanks for posting your recipe! Made for the Top Favorites of 2009 event

      So good!! I love it and can't wait to put it on our meal tonight. I used the same amount of salt as in the recipe and put in 3 chilies. I also added 4 tomatillos but next time I think I will add 1 or 2 more since 4 wasn't quite a 1/2 lb. The heat was just right and the flavor was perfect. Thanks for sharing this, I will be making it often! Made for ZWT5

      Fantastico! This salsa verde was very easy to make and the flavor was out of this world delicious! Not to hot, not to mild. Thanks for a great authentic salsa recipe! PS.. I did cut back the salt as well after reading cookiedog's review.
