This smooth, rich texture comes from puréed tomatillos, not cream. Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes. Notes: Make up to 1 day ahead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Put tomatillos in a small pan and broil 4 to 6 in. from heat, turning once, until skins are lightly charred, 5 to 8 minutes.

Step 2

In a small, heavy skillet over medium heat, toast pumpkin seeds until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes.

Step 3

In a blender or food processor, whirl tomatillos, pumpkin seeds, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, cilantro, and salt until combined but still slightly chunky. Scrape into a small bowl or gourd; add more salt to taste. Serve with chips.

Step 4
