DIRECTIONS

  • In medium saucepan add onion, tomatillo and serrano and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and boil until tomatillo is soft and changes color to a more yellow color (about 10 minutes). While these are boiling, add a few tablespoons of oil to a small saute pan over medium heat. Add the chiltepins and chile pequins for about 10 seconds and remove to drain on a paper towel. Let cool completely. When vegetables are done boiling remove from water and let cool completely. Add everything into a blender and process until smooth.
  • Notes - I use 12 chile pequins and 10 chiltepins but I like my salsa pretty hot. Sometimes I will just use my deep fat fryer to toast the chiles instead of using the saute pan.
  • If you like your salsa more chunky, reserve half of the tomatoes and the onion, dice and stir in at the end.
