2 Serrano or jalapeno chillies with the seeds removed cut into strips
1 cup of coarsely chopped onions
1 cup of loosely packed cilantro
1 lime for juice
Salt to taste
Variation: add 2 charred cloves of garlic
How to make Charred Tomatillo Salsa:
Place the tomatillos, chopped onions, chillie strips in a preheated oiled pan to char the vegetables. Keep the heat medium high and turn the vegetables continually until they are blackened all over. Charring the vegetables really adds to the flavor.
Charring the Tomatillos
After you have charred the vegetables, add them to the blender with the cilantro, lime juice, and salt to taste.
Blend the salsa coarsely. The salsa should have some body. You want to be able to see flecks of cilantro and bits of onion.
