A simple to make, extra tasty Mexican fresh tomatillo salsa that can be served with almost any Mexican dish. The salsa can be served cold or hot.
Preparation time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 5 minutes, Serves: 4 - 6 


2 cups chopped husked tomatillos
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1 - 3 serrano chiles, stems and seeds removed, diced (adjust to taste)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (coriander)
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
A pinch of sugar
Salt and black pepper to taste

2 Tbsp vegetable oil


Add all the ingredients (except the vegetable oil) in a blender and process until smooth.

In a saucepan over medium high heat add the vegetable oil and bring to a heat. Empty the blended ingredients in the saucepan and when the come to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, for 5 to 6 minutes.

Serve hot or cold, as needed.

Notes and tips

If you cannot find fresh tomatillos, you can use canned ones. If you can't find either you can substitute them with regular tomatoes; the taste will not be the same but it will be close enough. In case you use regular tomatoes, you might have to cook the sauce a bit longer (in order to get the desired consistency) as regular tomatoes have a bit more liquid than tomatillos.
