Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

This is an adaptation of Rick Bayless's Raw Tomatillo Salsa (


  • 5 Tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and quartered.
  • 2 Large garlic cloves, peeled and quartered.
  • 1 Jalapeno or hatch chili pepper, stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 1 Small or 1/2 large bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Salt


  1. Turn on broiler.
  2. Put tomatillos on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil and roast under broiler on highest rack, turning as each side gets a little blackened, until all sides are darkened. They won't be perfect, but get at least 4 to 5 good dark spots.
  3. Let tomatillos cool.
  4. Blend all ingredients. Taste and adjust as needed.
