Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa Recipe

Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa Recipes

  • PREP 10 mins
  • COOK 30 mins
  • READY IN 40 mins


Original recipe makes 2 1/2 cups

  •  1 pound fresh tomatillos, husks removed
  •  1 head garlic cloves, separated and peeled
  •  3 fresh jalapeno peppers
  •  1 bunch fresh cilantro
  •  1/2 cup water, or as needed
  •  salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven's broiler. Arrange the whole cloves of garlic, tomatillos, and jalapenos on a baking sheet. Place under the broiler, and cook for a few minutes. Remove garlic cloves first, as soon as they are toasted, to avoid developing a bitter flavor. Continue to roast jalapenos and tomatillos until evenly charred, turning occasionally. Set aside to cool. Don't remove the charred parts of the tomatillos or the peppers. They add a really nice flavor.
  2. Place peppers and tomatillos in a blender with the garlic and cilantro. Add a little water to the mixture if necessary to facilitate blending. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until serving.
