This salsa is delicious & would go great on tacos or enchiladas or anything you might add a regular salsa to. I dry roasted the tomatillos & jalapenos on my grill but it can be achieved in a dry frying pan or in your broiler.
Roasted Tomatillo & Jalapeno Salsa
2 lbs tomatillos – papery skin removed
4 jalapenos (less if you are sensitive to spice)
1 small onion
4 garlic cloves
1 cup fresh cilantro
4 oregano sprigs or 1 tsp dry oregano
1 tsp cumin
salt to taste
Char the tomatillos & jalapenos until they are black. Put in a plastic bag & let them sweat a few minutes. Under cool running water, slip the skins off everything, remove the stems & seed the jalapenos.
Simply blend all the ingredients to a puree.
