Total Time 15 mins


  • 2 pounds tomatillos, husks removed & washed
  • 6 jalapeños
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 medium-large onion
  • 2/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 teaspoon salt


  1. Chop the onion in half, crush the garlic, and leave the jalapeños and tomatillos whole. Roast on a baking sheet in a 400°F oven for about 15 minutes, turning all halfway over through roasting time.
  2. Peel the garlic, remove the seeds and rough chop the jalapeño, and peel and chop the onion.
  3. In a food processor, add all roasted ingredients, plus cilantro and salt and pulse until all ingredients are chopped and desired consistency is reached.
  4. I processed about half at a time and then blended everything together in a big bowl.
