  • 2 pounds tomatillos husks removed & washed
  • 6 jalapeños
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 medium-large onion
  • cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • Juice of one lime See Notes
  • 2 teaspoon salt


  • 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.
  • Peel the garlic, remove the seeds and rough chop the jalapeño, and peel and chop the onion.
  • In a food processor, add all roasted ingredients, plus cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pulse until all ingredients are chopped and desired consistency is reached. I like it best left a little chunky.
  • I processed about half at a time and then blended everything together in a big bowl.


Tomatillos have a bit of a citrus punch to them but I like extra lime juice. You may not; try your salsa before adding the lime!
