Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

6-8 tomatillos
1 red onion
2 jalapenos or Serrano peppers (add 1 more if you like it spicier)
4 garlic cloves
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 bunch of cilantro
Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400° F. Peel and wash tomatillos. Peel red onion, and cut into quarters. Wash and stem jalapenos.

Combine tomatillos, onion, jalapenos and garlic, and spread out in a small roasting pan. Drizzle with oil. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes; you want to see a little char or browning on the tops of the tomatillos and jalapenos. The garlic should feel soft and be brown in spots. Cool.

Place mixture, cilantro and salt in a food processor. Process while slowly adding about ¾ cup of water to achieve preferred salsa consistency. You may need to do this in two batches if there is too much for one batch.

Enjoy with tortilla chips, over tacos or with you favorite burrito Makes 8-0 cups.
