(makes 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 pound tomatillos (5 or 6), husked, rinsed, and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 fresh serrano or jalapeno chiles, coarsely chopped, including seeds, or more to taste
2 tablespoons chopped white onion
1 large garlic clove, peeled
3/4 teaspoon fine salt, or 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
Put the tomatillos in the blender jar first, then add the remaining ingredients. Blend until the salsa is very smooth
(the tomatillo seeds will still be visible), at least a minute. Season to taste with additional chile and salt, and blend
This salsa tastes best no more than a few hours after you make it.
BLENDING STUBBORN TOMATILLOS
It takes a minute or so for the blades of the blender jar to catch raw chopped tomatillos. Once they do, all the
ingredients will be pulled toward them. Be patient, and do not add any water. If the tomatillos don't liquidize after
a minute or so, stop the blender, prod them with a wooden spoon, and try to blend again.
