1. Remove and discard husks from tomatillos; rinse tomatillos well. Cut chilies in half lengthwise; remove and discard stems, seeds, and veins. Cut onion crosswise into 1-inch slices. Arrange tomatillos, chilies (cut sides down), onion, and garlic in a single layer in a 10- by 15-inch pan.
2. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat until vegetables are well browned, 15 to 20 minutes. When garlic is cool, peel.
3. Transfer vegetables and any liquid to a blender or food processor. Add broth and cilantro; whirl until smooth.
4. Pour chili mixture into a 3- to 4-quart pan over medium heat; stir occasionally until steaming.
