Get Organized!

Gather your mise en place; get together all of the equipment needed for the recipe and gather your ingredients.

Get Prepped!

Cut the tomatillos, chilies and onion and place on a baking sheet with the garlic. Roast in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until slightly charred.

Measure out the cilantro, oregano and salt.

Get Cooking!

Once the tomatillos are charred, carefully put the mixture into a blender with the cilantro, oregano and salt. Pulse until desired consistency.

Pour tomatillo mixture into a large pot, and heat to medium heat. Cook for about 10 – 15 minutes until mixture has thickened. Partially cover the pot with a lid to avoid it sputtering and burning you. Depending on the consistency you may want to skip this step. Adjust seasoning and allow to cool before serving.
