  • 10 medium tomatillos husked
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 peppers jalapeno peppers chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cover the tomatillos with water in a nonreactive saucepan and get it boiling. Let the pan simmer until the tomatillos soften and begin to burst, about 10 minutes.

  2. Drain out the tomatillos. Place them in a food processor or blender, along with the onion, garlic, jalapeno peppers, cilantro, salt and pepper. Blend that stuff up until it's as chunky or smooth as you prefer.
