Tomatillo Salsa


  • 2 small cans 12 oz or one large can of tomatillos
  • a bit of liquid from the tomatillos, if needed
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • salt to taste
  • a pickled jalapeno or one fresh jalapeno, chopped
  • a squirt of lime juice


  • Drain the tomatillos but keep the liquid. You might want to add some in at the end.
  • Pulse the tomatillos in your food processor, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend till it has the consistency you like. Taste and adjust the seasonings. If it’s too thick, add a bit of the liquid from the cans of tomatillo.
