Tomatillo Serrano Sauce

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove husks from tomatillos. Once husks are removed, rinse tomatillos under warm water. Rinse serrano pepper as well. Peel onion and garlic. Place all on a baking tray. Roast all vegetables in oven at 375 degrees for 20 min.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place in refrigerator for an hour to marinate or longer if you have the time.


  • Cut green pepper and onion into 1 inch pieces. Slice mushrooms in half. Set aside.
