1/2 pound tomatillos

2 cloves garlic

2 canned chipotle chiles

2 teaspoons sea salt, or to taste

1/2 to 1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste


  1. Preheat the broiler. Place the tomatillas on a baking tray and broil, turning frequently until slightly charred, 15 minutes. Set aside to cool. In a saucepan combine water, garlic, chiles, onion and cilantro and simmer until chiles are tender. In a blender combine tomatillas and simmered mixture and process to desired consistency, but not liquified. Transfer salsa to a bowl and add salt and 1/2 teaspoon sugar, to taste.
