Salsa de Tomatillos Como Las Asadas y Big Star
A super-flavorful salsa inspired by the great taquerias in Bucktown and Wicker park, in Chicago. Restaurant-style tomatillo salsa, a good change of pace from standard tomato salsa. Includes roasted peppers and the unstoppable combination of garlic, lime and cilantro.
Recipe Summary test
This recipe is definitely a "Medium" to "Mild" heat salsa. If you're interested in a "Hot" salsa, use 6-8 serranos. If you can't handle spicy at all, replace the serranos with another poblano. If you're really crazy, use 10+ serranos.
The salsa will have little black flecks of burned peel in it. Don't worry, it tastes fine! It's important to let the peppers steam themselves after roasting, to let the roasted flavor propagate to the flesh of the pepper. Putting the pepper directly in the boiling water and skipping that step will wash out this flavor somewhat.
