Print Recipe


  • 3 tomatillos, husked
  • 1 jalapeno, diced in 1-inch pieces
  • 6 serrano peppers, stems removed (depends how spicy you want it)
  • 4 roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (depends how spicy you want it)



Place tomatillos on baking sheet and broil for a few minutes until char spots appear.


Add tomatillos, jalapeno, roma tomatoes, serrano peppers, red onions, garlic cloves, and diced tomatoes to a large skillet and simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes to get the flavors to develop.


Next, pour skillet ingredients into a blender and add lime juice, salt, cayenne, sugar, and red pepper flakes and puree (depending on your blender, you may want to take the top off and place a towel over so it doesn't splatter all over you AND your kitchen).


Refrigerate at least 24 hours before serving.
