How to make it

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  • Remove the husks from the tomatillos and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness.
  • Remove the stems and seeds from the chilis and cut them in half lengthwise.
  • Roughly chop the onion and peel the garlic.
  • Arrange the chiles or peppers, garlic, onion and fresh tomatillos on a cookie sheet or pyrex pan, drizzle with olive oil and place the pan on the topmost shelf of your oven.
  • Roast for 15 minutes or until tomatillos are slightly browned and tender.
  • Chop up the cilantro.
  • Juice the lime and zest the rind.
  • Put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse. Add the salt and oregano. Pulse some more until smooth and well blended.

    Wow Laura! This is gorgeous. I really hope I get a chance to make this some time. Poblano peppers may be a problem here in Ottawa?
