  • 2 lbs tomatillos husks removed and rinsed well
  • 2 habanero peppers rinsed
  • 1/2 Half onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Remove husks from tomatillos and rinse them well to remove stickiness from outer skin. Rinse habaneros. 
    Add water to a small pot and over medium heat, boil tomatillos and habaneros for 10-15 minutes. 
  • Remove from pot and place tomatillos and habaneros in a blender after removing stems from habaneros. Blend for a few seconds until you have a chunky salsa. 
    Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place salsa in a dip bowl. (Could refrigerate for 30 min if you would like) Chop onion and cilantro and top salsa with both.
  • Serve with steak, chicken or fish. Use in tacos, tostadas or burritos. Or if you're a little daring, serve with some tortilla chips.
