How to Make Roasted Tomatillo Salsa, (Salsa de Tomatillo Asado)
- Remove papery husk from the tomatillos and wash well under cool water. Cut them in half and keep the cut side down on a foil lined baking sheet. Put the the two stemmed rinsed jalapenos cut in halves as well seed side down (cut length wise) next to the tomatillos. Cut vidalia onion in half and palce cut side down next to the jalapenos and tomatillos Broil for 5 to 7 minutes to lightly blacken the skins of the veggies. You are looking for a light char. Watch that they do char real bad.
- Next Place the tomatillos, onions, jalapenos, lime juice, cilantro, sugar, & cum,in the food processor and pulse till the ingredients are finely chopped. Add salt and pepper & galic powder to season. Place in refrigerator and serve cold with tortilla chips or on top of grilled meats. Enjoy
- If you do not like the taste of lime you can reduce the tablespoons of lime juice to two or three. I will post my picture tomorrow of my tomatillo salasa, My camera died and I am re-charging it tonight.
