Salsa Verde Take Two

You know the drill! We tweak this salsa verde recipe constantly because we have not quite reached the goal, which is to duplicate the amazing flavor of the famous Santana’s salsa verde. This time I roasted all of the ingredients under the broiler, including the garlic!

1 Lb (about 10) tomatillos
2 Roma tomatoes
3/4 Cup of fresh cilantro
4 Cloves of garlic (peeled)
1/4 Tsp kosher salt
1 Jalapeno pepper
1/2 Large white onion
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Peel husk from tomatillos and wash thoroughly. Place tomatillos, tomatoes, sliced onion and garlic cloves on cookie sheet or broiler pan. Place under the broiler for about 8-10 minutes or until the skin of the tomatillos is blackened. EVERY broiler is different, so keep an eye on the tomatillos after about 5 minutes just to make sure. Remove ingredients from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.

Combine the ingredients in food processor and blend. Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the food processor to make sure everything blends evenly. Pour contents of the food processor into a bowl and let cool. Salsa is ready to use after it cools, however, we have found that flavor improves if the salsa is refrigerated over night.
