    kcdelong's Note:

    Here is a recipe I got from Texas. Tomatillos look like tomatoes, but resemble the gooseberry.

    1. 1
      Heat the broiler, and cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
    2. 2
      With baking sheet 5 to 6 inches from flame, broil the tomatillos for 15 to 18 minutes, turning occasionally.
    3. 3
      Tomatillos will darken in spots.
    4. 4
      Remove from the broiler, allow to cool, and finely chop.
    5. 5
      Warm the olive oil in a skillet.
    6. 6
      Add the onion and sauté until softened.
    7. 7
      In a bowl, combine the onion and tomatillos.
    8. 8
      Stir in all remaining ingredients.
    9. 9
      May be served warm or cold.
    10. 10
      Notes: If using dried chipolte chiles, remove stems and seeds, place them in a pan, cover with water and bring to a boil.
    11. 11
      Remove from heat and allow chiles to soak until softened (the skin may still feel papery and tough, but the pulp will be tender).
    12. 12
      Process the chiles in a blender or food processor with only enough liquid to make a paste.
    13. 13
      If you are preparing only a small quantity, you may press the softened chiles through a sieve, instead of using a blender or food processor.

      Very good salsa! While the tomatillos were in the broiler, I chopped the onions, chipotles and cilantro in my food processor, the tomatillos got their turn in the processor once they cooled down a bit. I added an extra chipotle because I like it HOT!. Easy to put together and tasty with tortilla chips, I plan on serving the leftover salsa with fajitas. Thanks kcdelong for a good salsa recipe!
