Spicy Roasted Tomatillo and Tomato Salsa


Have you ever tried a tomatillo?  These tart little green fruits look like green tomatoes, but come with a papery skin that needs to be peeled off before you can use it.  They are very popular in Mexican cuisine so I decided to roast the tomatillos with onions, tomatoes and chilies to make a beautifully spicy salsa.  We ate this salsa with tacos and woooohoo.. they were amazing!  They were some of the best tacos I have ever eaten.


1 1/2 lbs cleaned tomatillos (quartered)
1lb sweet tomatoes (I picked yellow)
4-8 serrano chilies (to taste)
6-10 cloves of garlic (depending on size)
1 medium onion cut into chunks
salt and black pepper to taste
2-3Tbs canola oil
1/2 tsp cumin powder
2-3 Tbs water
salt to taste


Prep vegetables for roasting.
Roast in a 375 degree oven for 1 hour.

Place all roasted vegetables, cumin and  water into food processor.  Blend to your desired texture.. either chunky or smooth.  Add salt to taste.  If you like you can add some lime juice as well.   Serve at room temperature or chilled with chips or on tacos.  Enjoy.
