  • Author: Sara Haas


A fresh and tangy salsa made with fresh tomatillos, perfect for tacos or for enjoying with tortilla chips.


  • 15 ounces tomatillos, skins removed and washed
  • 5 ounces white onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, skins removed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • salt, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to broil and line a sheet pan with foil that has been coated in non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Quarter the tomatillos and add them to a bowl along with the onion, garlic and olive oil. Toss to coat. Pour mixture out onto prepared baking sheet.
  3. Broil 4 minutes, stir, then broil 2 more minutes. Stir again and broil an additional 2 minutes or until tomatillos and onion are blistered and browned. Remove and cool slightly before transferring to a blender or the bowl of a food processor. Add the jalapeño and lime juice and puree** until smooth. Season with salt to taste, if desired.


  • Makes about 2 cups salsa.
  • **When pureeing hot or warm liquids, use extreme caution. Allow to cool slightly first, work in small batches if needed, and allow a place for steam to escape.
