This was my first time buying tomatillos. It was actually my first time seeing them at the market but maybe, I had never really looked.
Tomatillos are like little green tomatoes. They come covered in a papery husk. Just peel of the husk and you have a little green tomato ready to be made into some delicious salsa.
Green spicy salsa was my mission and thats what I got. I bought a variety of hot peppers at the market so I had a few different ones to choose from for this salsa. You can change the type of hot pepper you use depending on what is available to you and how hot you want it.
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
14 tomatillos (approximately), husks removed
1 fresh green cayenne pepper (or another type of fresh hot pepper)
1/2 cup cilantro
1/4 cup chopped white onion
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp lime juice
1/4 tsp sea salt
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Place the tomatillos in a baking dish and roast for about 15 mins.
Remove from oven and leave to cool for 10-15 mins.
In a food processor, combine the tomatillos with the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth.
Serve with organic corn tortillas. If you can find baked tortillas I recommend trying them. I prefer unsalted or lightly salted tortillas.
