Ingredients

  • 10 tomatillos
  • 2 Serrano Chiles
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion
  • cilantro a large handful
  • 2 limes
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Remove the husks from around the tomatillos. Rinse to remove the sticky film around the tomatillos.
  • Roughly chop onion and Serrano chili peppers.
  • Add the tomatillos, Serrano chiles, onion, and garlic to a large stock pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil.
  •  Reduce heat to a simmer.  Cook for 10 minutes or until tomatillos and Serrano chiles change into a dull olive green color.
  • Remove all liquid.
  • Add all cooked ingredients to a food processor or blender.
  • Juice the limes.
  • Add lime juice and cilantro to the tomatillo mixture.
  • Blend until smooth. 
  • Salt to taste.
  • You can serve immediately. I prefer to refrigerate an hour or more before serving to allow the flavors to fully build. 

Notes

If you like it extra spicy, add in another Serrano chili. If you want it mild, use jalapeƱos instead of the Serrano chiles. If you are really scared of the heat, remove the seeds from the jalapeƱos.
