This can be used as a dip, a flavor bomb with a rice dish or as an accompaniment to homemade macaroni and cheese. Let me know how you use it!

Makes about 1 cup

5 Tomatillos, charred
1 Jalapeno, chopped
1/4 Medium Onion, chopped
1/2 Lime, juiced
1/3 bunch Cilantro, chopped
Salt and Pepper

Mixing bowl
Food Processor


1. Char the tomatillos over fire until blackened, chop. In food processor pulse tomatillos, jalapeño and onion. Add lime, cilantro, salt and pepper and cayenne if desired.
2. Strain to remove excess water (reserve if there is another dish that could use some extra flavor).

If you have poblano peppers they are a great addition to this, when I get them from my farm I char them alongside the tomatillos (steam them in a bowl covered with plastic wrap for 10 minutes, then remove skin and chop) and add them in, they are a great addition to so many dishes!
