The super bowl is quickly approaching and I have seen about a thousand recipes for dips I’d like to try. I’m even considering having a “dip party” so I can eat as many dips as possible in a single day. Don’t judge.
I love this salsa recipe because it’s a different, tasty, you can use it in various recipes (foreshadowing much?) and most importantly it’s EASY.  You simply throw everything in a pan, broil it and blend it. Doesn’t get much easier…
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh tomatillos or 3 (11-ounce) cans tomatillos
  • 5 fresh serrano chiles
  • 3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt

Preheat broiler.

If using fresh tomatillos, remove husks and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness. If using canned tomatillos, drain and measure out 2 cups. Broil chiles, garlic, and fresh tomatillos (do not broil canned) on rack of a broiler pan 1 to 2 inches from heat, turning once, until tomatillos are softened and slightly charred, about 7 minutes.


Peel garlic and pull off tops of chilies. Purée all ingredients in a blender. Use in your favorite recipe or serve with tortilla chips.
