TOMATILLO SALSA VERDE

1 ½ lb tomatillos
½ cup chopped white onion
½ cup cilantro leaves
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
¼ tsp sugar
2 jalapeno peppers (or 2 serrano peppers), stemmed, seeded and chopped
Salt to taste

Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well.

Cook the tomatillos using one of the following methods:

1. Oven roasting method – Cut the tomatillos in half. Place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under a broiler for 5-7 minutes to lightly blacken the skin.

2. Pan roasting method – Coat the bottom of a skillet with a little vegetable oil. Heat on high heat. Place the tomatillos in the pan. Sear on one side. Flip over and brown the other side. Remove from heat.

3. Boiling method – Place tomatillos in a saucepan. Cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove tomatillos with a slotted spoon.

Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, peppers and sugar in a blender or food processor. Pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season to taste with salt. Cool in refrigerator. Serve with chips or as a salsa accompaniment to Mexican dishes.

Makes 3 cups.
