Description[edit]

If you're pressed for time, you may want to try a jarred brand of tomatillo salsa instead of making it from scratch. We can't attest to the quality of all of them, but we do love Rick Bayless's, which has a fine, robust flavor. (look for it in specialty foods stores and in some supermarkets.

Ingredients[edit]

Procedures[edit]

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. If using fresh tomatillos, remove husks and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness.
  3. If using canned tomatillos, drain and measure out 2 cups.
  4. Broil chiles, garlic, and fresh tomatillos (do not broil canned) on rack of a broiler pan 1 to 2 inches from heat, turning once, until tomatillos are softened and slightly charred, about 7 minutes.
  5. Peel garlic and pull off tops of chiles.
  6. Purée all ingredients in a blender.
  7. Salsa can be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.
