Roasted Salsa Verde

As I have noted before my husband is a lover of all salsa's that are "Green." Brian asked for me to make some salsa since he was in a mood for it. He wanted me to try and make it like one of his favorite which is from a restaurant called Rosa's Mexican Cafe. I was able to come across a recipe online tried it and the recipe was spot on and was very good. It's simple enough to make and if you love green sauce and want to try something new. It's kind of sweet and has heat at the same time. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.


Salsa Verde

What Ya'll Need:
14  Tomatillos
2 Jalapeno pepper
1 Serrano pepper
3 Unpeeled garlic cloves
6 tbsp. Diced white onion
3/4 cup Cilantro
2 tbsp. Lime juice
1 tsp. Salt

Directions:
Remove husks and wash tomatillos. Cut peppers in half and remove seeds. Place tomatillos, peppers and unpeeled garlic cloves onto a pan with sides. Place into the oven, cook 15-20 minutes until the tomatillos are roasted and the peppers are slightly charred on all sides. During cook time make sure to rotate tomatillos, peppers and garlic at least once. Remove from oven and add the tomatillos, peppers and juices to a food processor as well as the onions, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Peel the garlic and discard the skins, add them to blender and pulse 5-10 times or until the salsa has come together how you would like. Serve salsa warm, at room temperature or cold.

**Cooking Tips: When roasting salsa, if you want more charred last five mins turn on broiler to high and cook five minutes longer.
