Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1520 tomatillos, sliced in half
  • 4 jalapeños, top stem cut off
  • 5 whole garlic gloves, peeled
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • salt & pepper


  1. Turn your oven broiler on high and line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Arrange the tomatillos (cut side down), jalapeños, and garlic cloves on the foil and place about 4″ under the broiler. Let cook for 4-6 minutes, or until the skins on the tomatillos are starting to blacken.
  3. Remove from the heat and transfer (along with all juices on the foil) to a blender. Add the onion, lime juice, and cilantro. Blend until mostly smooth, and add salt & pepper to taste.
