|Tomatillo-Chipotle Sauce #2|
T This is a very versatile sauce. It can be served hot or cold, spread on roast pork sandwiches, used to compliment grilled fish, pork, rabbit, lamb or chicken, and is perfect with enchiladas. It is less acidic and softer in the mouth than sauces using regular tomatoes. If this sauce is served warm, do not let it sit too long as the cilantro tends to lose its color and gets tired in flavor.
Husk and wash tomatillos under hot water. With a comal or black iron skillet (dry), cook tomatillos for 20-25 minutes over medium-high heat
until soft and blackened all over. Do not allow to dry out. Shake pan every few minutes. Roast garlic until soft but not burnt. Sautée onion in
1 tablespoon olive oil until soft and browned. Place tomatillos, garlic, onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, chipotles, adobo sauce, cilantro and salt
in a blender or food processor. Process until combined; consistency should be even, wiht no lumps. Add water if necessary. Add lime juice
and blend for a few more seconds. Add more cilantro if desired. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
