Yields: approximately 2 cups
6 Tomatillos (12 if small)
7 Chiles Puya
Salt to taste
- Remove husks from tomatillos and wash to get rid of sticky film.
- Boil about 1 quart of water and add tomatillos and dried chiles.
- Once tomatillos are cooked through (7-10mins) remove from heat. Chiles will be hydrated enough by this time also.
- Place all tomatillos and chiles in blender and add peeled garlic and blend until smooth or desired consistency.
- Add salt to taste
