Charred tomatillo salsa verde with jalapeño, white onion, cilantro, and avocado.


  • Roughly 1 lb of tomatillos, husked and washed
  • 1 white onion, quartered
  • 3 jalapeños
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Additional fresh, diced white onion, cilantro, and avocado for garnish


  1. Placed the husked and washed tomatillos, quartered onion, and whole jalapeños on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet.  Broil on high until charred and tender.  Depending on your oven, this may take about 10-20 minutes.
  2. Remove tomatillos, onion, and jalapenos from the oven and allow to cool.  Then, toss them all into the food processor with the cilantro, garlic, lime juice, and salt.
  3. Blend until the salsa reaches your desired texture.
  4. Garnish with fresh, diced white onion and avocado, a little cilantro, and freshly cracked black pepper and serve with tortilla chips!
  5. Don’t forget the Sparkling Blood Orange Margaritas!
