for tomatillo salsa
The unique flavor of this fruit makes a tasty 'Salsa Verde' or green salsa. It grows successfully in a wide range of climates. A papery husk covers the fruit, which is somewhat smaller than a tomato. Used extensively in Mexican foods.
If using fresh tomatillos to make the tomatillo salsa, remove husks and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness. If using canned tomatillos, drain and measure out 2 cups. Broil chiles, garlic, and fresh tomatillos (do not broil canned) on rack of a broiler pan 1 to 2 inches from heat, turning once, until tomatillos are softened and slightly charred, about 7 minutes. Peel garlic and pull off tops of chiles. Purée allthe tomatillo salsa ingredients in a blender.
