1 pound tomatillos (about 8, each 2 in. wide)
1 fresh serrano chili (1/4 oz.)
1/4 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 or 2 green onions, rinsed, ends trimmed, and chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and peper


1. Remove and discard husks from tomatillos; rinse tomatillos. Rinse chili; remove and discard stem. Place tomatillos and chili in a 9-inch square baking pan and broil 4 inches from heat, turning as needed, until browned well on all sides, 12 to 15 minutes total for tomatillos and 6 to 8 minutes for chili. Remove vegetables as done.

2. In a food processor or blender, whirl tomatillos, chili, garlic, green onions, and lime juice, pulsing just until mixture is coarsely chopped; do not overprocess. Stir in cilantro, then salt and pepper to taste.
