 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------------NORMA WRENN--------------------------------
  • 3 c Water
  • 2 1/2 ts Salt
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 4 Fresh serrano chili peppers
  • 1 lb Tomatillos; husks removed
  • 1/2 c Fresh cilantro; (fresh

  • 1/4 c Onion; finely chopped


In a saucepan over high heat, combine the water and 1 teaspoon of the salt
and bring to a boil. Add the garlic, chilies and tomatillos and cook,
uncovered, until soft, 8-10 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the
liquid. When cool enough to handle, stem the chilies and tomatillos.

In a blender or in a food processor fitted with the metal blade, combine
the garlic, chiles, tomatillos, reserved liquid, cilantro and remaining
1-1/2 teaspoons salt. Process to form a smooth puree, then transfer to a
bowl. Stir in the chopped onion.

Let the salsa cool to room temperature, then serve. The salsa can be stored
tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
