Tomatillos, lots of garlic and spicy jalapenos charred under the broiler give this salsa a rich, earthy flavor. If you like your salsa very hot, added roasted Jamaican scotch bonnets instead of the jalapeno.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh tomatillos, husks removed

  • 1 head garlic cloves, separated and peeled

  • 3 fresh jalapeno peppers

  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro

  • ½ cup water, or as needed

  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler. Arrange the whole cloves of garlic, tomatillos, and jalapenos on a baking sheet. Place under the broiler, and cook for a few minutes. Remove garlic cloves first, as soon as they are toasted, to avoid developing a bitter flavor. Continue to roast jalapenos and tomatillos until evenly charred, turning occasionally. Set aside to cool. Don't remove the charred parts of the tomatillos or the peppers. They add a really nice flavor.

  2. Place peppers and tomatillos in a blender with the garlic and cilantro. Add a little water to the mixture if necessary to facilitate blending. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until serving.
