Salsa Verde (Green Hot Sauce)



1 lb. fresh tomatillos (500g)

12 cloves fresh garlic

2 fresh chile serrano, stems removed

1 tsp. salt, or to taste (2g)


Remove the husks from tomatillos & wash well. Place in a 2 qt (2L) saucepan & cover with water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, & simmer for 15 minutes, until the tomatillos turn to olive drab color. Remove from the heat & drain the water.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a blender & blend until smooth.
