Delicious on tacos, with chips, or as a salad dressing. You can adjust the heat to your taste either taking the jalapenos out all together or adding serranos in with the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs tomatillos
  • 12 cup white onion (chopped)
  • 12 cup cilantro (leaves and stems)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 14 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 jalapeno peppers (stemmed, seeded and chopped)
  • salt


  1. Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well. Cut in half and place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under a broiler for about 5-7 minutes to lightly blacken the skin.
  2. Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, Jalapeño peppers, sugar in a food processor (or blender) and pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season to taste with salt. Cool in refrigerator.

Very good tasting salsa and easy to make. 1/4 tsp salt worked well for me and a double recipe fit nicely into my food processor. Yay!
