This is one of my favorite new salsa recipes. It has only a few ingredients and can be made in minutes. The tomatillos add a nice tang that compliments the chipotles very well. I like to use this salsa on just about everything. It adds a great smoky, tangy flavor to a sandwich, steak, chicken, soup, pizza, tacos and of course chips.
4-5 garlic cloves
5 medium tomatillos husked, rinsed and cut in half
2-3 canned chipotle chilies in adobo (I use more because I’m a spice freak)
Salt to taste
Onions and cilantro are optional but work very well too
Roast garlic and tomatillos cut side down in a large non-stick skillet on medium-high for about 4-5 minutes until they are browned very well. Flip and roast other side until tomatillos are very soft. Put tomatillos, garlic, chipotles, onion, cilantro and salt in blender and process to a nice puree. It may be necessary to add a little bit of water depending on the consistency you like. Put into a dish or old salsa jar and cool.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups
