Packed with tomatillo and tart lime flavor, this salsa is a great way to try out (or use up) any green tomatoes you have lying around. A versatile salsa, it's perfect for dipping with tortillas or adding to a grilled fish taco. You might even want to try stirring it into sour cream for an enchilada sauce. For less of a spicy kick, omit the jalapeños.

  • 2 green tomatoes (about 12 ounces total), cored and quartered lengthwise
  • 2 medium fresh tomatillos (about 4 ounces total), husked and halved
  • 1 medium (11 ounce) yellow onion, coarsely chopped (1½ cups)
  • 2 medium (about 2 ounces total) jalapeño chiles, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro (from 1 bunch)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 large lime)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to high broil with rack 5 inches from heat source. Toss together tomatoes, tomatillos, onion, jalapeños and oil on a large rimmed baking sheet; spread in a single layer. Broil in preheated oven until tender and lightly charred, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer tomato mixture to a food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped, about 5 times. Add cilantro, lime juice, cumin and salt; pulse until mixture is combined, 2 to 3 times. (For a thinner salsa, add water by tablespoonfuls until desired consistency is reached. For a spicier salsa, do not seed the jalapeños.)
