“I was searching for a good salsa verde recipe where you roast the tomatillos and found this on Epicurious website. I have made salsa verde where you don't roast them and the taste is very different. The roasting gives you more of a smoky flavor where the unroasted is more sweet and tangy I think. Note for Serranos: 1= Mild salsa 2= Medium salsa 3= Hot salsa 4= Very Hot salsa 5= Super Hot salsa”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. If using fresh tomatillos, remove husks and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness. If using canned tomatillos, drain and measure out 2 cups. Broil chiles, garlic, ( I usually include the onion also) and fresh tomatillos ( do not broil canned) on rack of a broiler pan 1 to 2 inches from heat, turning once, until tomatillos are softened and slightly charred.
  3. Peel garlic and pull off tops of chilies. Puree all ingredients in a blender.
