About this recipe: If you are lucky enough to get your hands on fresh tomatillos or even a tin or two at a Mexican grocery store - it's well worth making this salsa. Adds a whole new flavour to tacos or fajitas.


Makes: 500 ml

  • 10 tomatillos
  • 8 serrano chilli peppers
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons salt

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Place the tomatillos, serrano chilli peppers, onion slices and garlic in a saucepan, and add enough water to just cover them. Sprinkle the salt over the top, bring to the boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the tomatillos are soft and have turned slightly brownish in color, 20 to 30 minutes. Add more water if needed to keep the mixture from burning as it cooks.
  2. Pour the cooked vegetables into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer to a bowl for serving with tacos or any other Mexican favourites.
