To make the Salsa Verde, you will need:
- Tomatillos (Ihappened to have 3/4 pounds, so Maria gave me amounts according to that)
- 3 Garlic cloves
- 6-7 Tepin chiles
- Salt, to taste, I used 1/4 teaspoon
1. Pan roast the 3/4# tomatillos, for the best flavor, roast them on the BBQ. I have never BBQ 'ed tomatillos, but it sure makes green chiles fantastic! It's easier if the tomatillos about the same size. Mine were very different and it made it a little tricky to get them all done without burning any of them.
2. Pan roast the 2-3 garlic cloves, sliced and 6-7 tepins for mild (Maria uses 10-12!). 3. Cut the little cores from the tomatillos. 4. Put everything you have toasted into the food processor or blender and give a good whirl! ( I used the highest speed) It made 2 full cups of salsa. 5. Time to do the "QC" (quality control) test! 6. Salt to taste, I used 1/4 t. Most would want more than that.
