Mexican Salsa Verde and Thai-Style Grilled Chile Salsa

 

Mexican Tomatillo Salsa
This Mexican-style salsa is made with cooked tomatillos instead of tomatoes. Although you can use drained canned tomatillos, the taste is much brighter when you make it with fresh ones.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups (500 mL) fresh tomatillos (about 9) husked
  2. 2 to 4 serrano peppers, coarsely chopped
  3. 1/2 cup (125 mL) packed fresh cilantro leaves
  4. 2 tbsp (30 mL) coarsely chopped red or green onions
  5. 1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
  6. 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
Instructions
  1. 1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine tomatillos with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer just until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, let cool slightly and transfer to food processor fitted with the metal blade. Pulse until chopped, 2 or 3 times.
  2. 2. Add serrano peppers to taste, cilantro, onion, garlic and salt. Pulse until chiles are finely chopped and mixture is well combined, about 10 times.
  3. 3. Transfer to a serving bowl and let stand at room temperature until flavours are melded, about 15 minutes. Serve within 3 hours of making.
Notes
  1. If you prefer, substitute jalapeño peppers, to taste, for the serranos.
  2. The quantity of tomatillos called for in this recipe is that in a pint (500 mL) basket.
