Roasted Tomatillo, Onion & Jalapeno Salsa

This recipe for Roasted Tomatillo, Onion & Jalapeno Salsa is delicious for dipping chips in!  The vegetables are roasted in the oven which creates a creamy salsa!

This year we’ve grown the most tomatillos in our gardening history so I’ve been excited to experiment with new tomatillo recipes.  I usually rely on my Tomatillo Salsa Verde recipe to make with our tomatillos (plus it freezes great for preserving) but I wanted to make a Tomatillo Salsa that was creamy, thick but not too thick and very tasty.  This recipe calls for tomatillos, onions and jalapenos which makes it a triple threat if you have all 3 growing in your garden.   Roasting them in the oven gives them a rich, smoky taste and helps in making the salsa creamy instead of watery.

When adding everything to the food processor, make sure to add the liquid that is sitting on your pan too. This is going to help make the salsa creamy as it’s thick with tomatillo juices.

Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 pounds tomatillos - husked removed, cleaned
  2. 2 jalapeno peppers
  3. 1 medium sized onion
  4. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  5. 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  6. 1 tablespoon lime juice
  7. 1/4 cup cilantro
  8. salt + pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place tomatillos, jalapenos and onion on a baking sheet. Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil on top. Mix with spatula to coat.

  5. Cut the stems off jalapenos and remove the seeds. If you want extra spicy salsa you can keep the seeds but it will be hot. I prefer my salsa without seeds.

  7. Serve with chips, throw on tacos, pour over chicken, etc.
