A great roasted tomatillo salsa that is perfect with chips or enchiladas!



20 Husked and Rinsed Fresh Tomatillos

1 peeled onion, sliced

4 unpeeled garlic cloves

1 chipotle in adobo Sauce

2 T cilantro

1 pinch each of sugar and salt

Tortilla Chips



Broil tomatillos, onion and garlic until charred.

Peel garlic and puree tomatillos, onion and garlic with chipotle, cilantro and sugar and salt.


If you like your salsa with more tomato flavor feel free to add in some tomato sauce. This is also good with a cubed avocado mixed in. And some might like a pinch of cumin. If you have never used fresh tomatillos, now is the time. They taste like a tart green tomato!
