Recipe from Season 7, Mexico—One Plate at a Time
Servings: 11/2 cups


  • 4medium (about 8 ounces total)tomatillos, husked, rinsed and quartered
  • 1large garlic clove, peeled and quartered
  • Hot green chiles to taste (I like 2 serranos or 1 jalapeno), stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 to 2/3cup (loosely packed) roughly chopped cilantro
  • Salt


Combine tomatillos, garlic, chile and cilantro in a blender jar or food processor. Add 1/4 cup water and a generous 1/2 teaspoon salt. Process to a coarse puree. If using a blender, begin blending on low, at first pulsing to get the mixture moving evenly through the blender blades. Pour into a salsa dish and thin with a little more water if necessary to give the salsa an easily spoonable consistency. Taste and season with additional salt, if you think necessary. Serve right away.
