Todd’s Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
Amazing roasted Tomatillo Salsa or add some to your ranch dressing, close your eyes and you'll think you're at Cafe Rio!
  • 1½ pounds fresh tomatillos
  • 1 or two fresh Serrano chiles
  • 3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • ½ large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar (I used a little liquid stevia)
  1. Preheat broiler. Remove hulls from tomatillos and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness. Broil chiles, garlic, and tomatillos on rack of a broiler pan 1 to 2 inches from heat, turning once, until tomatillos are softened and slightly charred, usually about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Peel garlic and pull off tops of chiles. Purée all ingredients in a blender. Add sugar and salt. Chill well to let flavors blend, overnight is best.
I roasted my onion too, Toddy does not, no worries!
