Roasted Salsa Verde

Roasted Salsa Verde

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

Oh my goodness how we love Mexican food, tacos, carne asada, salsa's, tamales oh the list goes on and on. While we were in Arizona a few weeks ago we visited a few very good Mexican restaurants and they had some wonderful salsa's.  When we arrived back home I thought to myself those salsa's were so good that I would give it a whirl and make a green salsa. I mean I always knew how easy it was to make but why I have never made green salsa before was beyond me.    Omigosh this salsa was a hit with my family, wether your dipping your tortilla chips in it or spreading it on your tacos this salsa will blow you away!                                    
Prep time: PT5M                  
Cook time: PT40M
Total time: PT1H5M

  • 7 Whole Tomatillos
  • 1/2 Cup Sweet Onion Cut In Half
  • 2 Whole Serrano Peppers
  • 1 Whole Jalapeno Pepper
  • 4-5 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro
  • 2 Teaspoons Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt (Or to Taste)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper (Or to Taste)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic Roasted (Optional)
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a cookie sheet or a cookie sheet with sides with tin foil.
  3. Wash and dry tomatillos and serrano peppers.
  4. Place a small amount of olive oil in the palm of your hand and coat tomatillos, serrano peppers, jalapeno pepper, (garlic optional) and half of onion. **Note** leave skin on the half of onion and place cut side down on cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until tomatillos are soft.
  6. For this next step you can either use a blender or a food processor, (I used a blender)
  7. When vegetables are finished cooking remove from the oven and place the tomatillos in the blender or food processor.
  8. Remove skin from the onion and place in the blender or food processor.
  9. **Note** to control the amount of heat that goes into your salsa remove stems and seeds from the jalapeno and serrano peppers, if you want it hotter than add the seeds a little at a time.
  10. Place peppers in the blender or food processor.
  11. Place cilantro, lime juice salt, and pepper in the blender or food processor.
  12. Blend until smooth, remove from the blender and place in the refrigerator until completely cooled.
