  • 10-12 tomatillos

  • 1-4 serranos cut in half and seeds removed. The number of peppers used depends on the amount of heat you like.

  • Peel your tomatillos, prep your veggies.
  • Place the tomatillos, peppers, onions, and garlic on a baking sheet.
  • Broil in the oven, turning the veggies occasionally to make sure they are all charred.
  • Remove from the oven.
  • Place all into a food processor or blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Add in the cilantro, 2 tablespoons of lime juice to the blender. Then add in the cumin, and 1 teaspoon of salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper.
  • Blend well. Then, taste and adjust as needed. I like quite a bit of lime and also salty. You might like yours differently.
  • Once you have it the way you like it, you are done!
  • This will store well in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
  • Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it.
