Mild Green Sauce Recipe


  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 lbs fresh tomatillos, or one 28oz can prepared whole tomatillos
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 whole serrano chilies (optional)
  • salt to taste


If using fresh tomatillos, husk and wash them, then place the tomatillos in a saucepan, covering them with water. Bring water to boil, and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes, or until tomatillos turn from bright green to a dull olive color. Drain water, and set aside.

If using canned tomatillos, drain water, then set aside.

Place tomatillos with garlic in a blender and puree. Set aside. In a clean skillet, fry the onion in a bit of oil. Add in tomatillo puree, and whole chilies. Salt to taste, and allow to simmer for 10 minutes, until slightly reduced.

Makes 2 cups
