I recently had the chance to visit some of my family in northern Utah. What a beautiful part of our planet!
It was great visiting with my aunts, uncles, cousins and meeting some new additions to our extended family. And I also ate some great food!
While at my Tía Juanita’s house, she served this salsa with breakfast. I asked her for the recipe and I was surprised at how simple it was to make. Three ingredients! OK, four, if you count the salt.
Salsa de Tomatillo y Chile Japonés
10 ounces tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1 ounce chile japonés
4 garlic cloves
Salt, to taste
In a skillet over medium-heat, roast the chiles until they are slightly charred.
Stir frequently so the chiles roast evenly. Place in a blender.
In the same skillet, roast the tomatillos and add to the blender. Do the same with the garlic.
Purée the ingredients until smooth.
Pour into a bowl and add salt, to taste. Serve.
