This is one of the great table sauces of Mexico. The crisp, fresh flavors of the tomatillos, cilantro (fresh coriander), and chiles make a wonderful accomaniment to tacos de carnitas or grilled (barbecued) meat. One of the most simple ways to enjoy it is in a hot tortilla with nothing more than a little queso panela or fresh farmers chese. Canned tomatillos cannot be substituted in this recipe.
12 oz fresh tomatillos, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1/2 oz cilantro leaves
3 serrano chiles (1/3 oz)
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Put the tomatillos in a food processor, then add the remaining ingredients. Pulse briefly so that the texture remains coarse.

Set aside for 1 hour before serving to let the flavors meld. The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Serving Size = 1 Tablespoon
