Tomatillo Salsa Recipe
Tomatillos, of course, are the base of this Tomatillo Salsa recipe. Tomatillos are green and resemble miniature tomatoes. They are a great base for many salsas, and if you see a green salsa you can guess that it was made with a tomatillo base. This tomatillo salsa recipe makes 2 cups.

What You Need
• 1 pound tomatillos, husked
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
• 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
• 2 canned chipotle chiles, finely chopped
• 1 tablespoon white vinegar
• 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
• 1/2 teaspoon salt

What To Do
1. Heat your broiler and cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Place tomatillos on baking sheet and broil 5-6 inches from heat for 15-18 minutes, turning occasionally. (Tomatillos will darken in spots.)

3. Remove tomatillos from broiler, allow to cool, then finely chop.

4. Warm olive oil in a skillet, then add onion and sauté until softened.

5. In a bowl, combine onion and tomatillos. Stir in all remaining ingredients.

6. Serve warm or cold.

7. May be served warm or cold.
