My love from salsa continuously grows. When I say this, one might not be sure whether I'm talking about a condiment or a dance. In this case, it's the condiment. Though, recently I returned to the dance and couldn't be more happier.
This my friends, is a simple to prepare, but complex in flavor Roasted Tomatillo Salsa. The recipe is rather easy to make and the ingredient amounts can adjusted to suit your taste.
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
8-10 tomatillos, washed, halved
1 onion, peeled, quartered
1 fresh serrano chile
1 fresh red chile
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 cloves of garlic
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2. Coat tomatillos, onion, and chilies in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the vegetables in a single layer on top of a baking sheet.
3. Roast the vegetables in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally, until caramelized and softened, about 25-35 minutes.
4. Puree roasted vegetables with the remaining ingredients until you reach desired consistency. I like mine a bit chunky. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Use the salsa to top sandwiches, salads, grilled meats, or scrambled eggs.
