Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh tomatillos, husks removed
  • 1 head garlic cloves, separated and peeled
  • 3fresh jalapeno peppers
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • ½ cup water, or as needed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven’s broiler. Arrange the whole cloves of garlic, tomatillos, and jalapenos on a baking sheet. Place under the broiler, and cook for a few minutes. Remove garlic cloves first, as soon as they are toasted, to avoid developing a bitter flavor. Continue to roast jalapenos and tomatillos until evenly charred, turning occasionally. Set aside to cool. Don’t remove the charred parts of the tomatillos or the peppers. They add a really nice flavor.
