Carlos Murphy's Tomatillo Sauce

Source: Carlos Murphy's - La Jolla, California


  • 1 gallon tomatillos, boiled
  • 1 pound fresh arbol chiles (or cayenne)
  • 1 head garlic, cloves skinned
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Roast chiles (with seeds) on a pan in the oven with no oil or seasonings until slightly charred.
  2. In a food processor, place tomatillos, chiles, garlic and salt. Blend until chunky.
  3. Serve with fish tacos or chicken.

If you can't find fresh arbol chiles, most supermarkets carry them in their dried form. Try boiling them in hot water to soften them up, or grind them into a powder and add to processor.
