1 cup Cilantro
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
¼ cup Olive Oil
3-4 serrano chili pepper, halved and seeded
1 tbsp Sweet Heat Rub
1 lb. tomatillos, husks removed
Versatile and packed with flavor, this homemade Chili Verde Sauce is the perfect addition to tacos, enchiladas, fish, or alone served with tortilla chips. Lightly charring the vegetables before pureeing them gives this salsa verde an alluring smokiness; fresh cilantro and tart lime juice added at the end make all the flavors pop.
Be sure to coat the peppers, onion, tomatillos, and garlic evenly with olive oil before throwing them on the grill. Grill vegetables until slight charred and bubbling on all sides, about 10 – 20 minutes. Allow them to cool slightly and blend with seasonings and lime juice.
Note: It is recommended to use Apple Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.
