  • 9 medium-sized tomatillos

  • 1 small yellow onion, cut into large chunks

  • 1 to 2 hot peppers

  • 4 unpeeled garlic cloves

  • 2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil, plus extra for drizzling

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1¼ teaspoons sea salt, with additional for sprinkling

  • Tortilla chips, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Remove the husks from the tomatillos, rinse to eliminate stickiness, and pat dry. Place them on the baking sheet along with the onion and peppers.

  3. Drizzle with avocado oil, sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat. Wrap the garlic cloves in a piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and add them to the baking sheet.

  4. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the tomatillos are juicy and browned.

  5. Remove the garlic from the foil and peel it. Also, remove the stems from the peppers.

  6. In a food processor, combine the roasted tomatillos, onion, peppers, peeled garlic, olive or avocado oil, lime juice, cilantro, and salt. Process until well combined. If the salsa is too thick, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it reaches your desired consistency. Season to taste and serve.

  7. Store any leftover salsa in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
