    Chef #726534's Note:

    From Diana Kennedy's "From My Mexican Kitchen: Techniques and Ingredients." This is the best green salsa I've ever made. It can be used as a straight salsa or as a sauce to cook meat in.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb tomatillo, husks removed and rinsed
    • 3 serrano chilies, finely chopped
    • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped and loosely packed
    • 2 tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped for garnish
    • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
    • 2 tablespoons white onions, roughly chopped
    • sea salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the tomatillos whole in a small saucepan, barely cover with water, and bring to a simmer. lower the heat and continue cooking until soft but not falling apart, about 5 minutes depending on size. Drain, reserving the cooking water.
    2. 2
      Using a molcajete: Mash and grind together the chiles, 1/2 cup cilantro, the garlic, onion, and salt. Add the tomatillos a few at a time, crushing and grinding well after each addition and adding a little of the cooking liquid until you have a textured sauce of medium consistency. You will probably need about 1/2 cup or even more of the cooking liquid.
    3. 3
      Using a blender: Put 1/3 cup of the cooking water into the blender jar. Add the chiles, 1/2 cup cilantro, the garlic, and the onion and grind to a paste. Add the tomatillos a little at a time, blending with about 1/3 cup more of the cooking liquid until you have a textured sauce of medium consistency. Add salt to taste.
    4. 4
      To serve: Sprinkle the top with the extra cilantro.
