Grilled Tomatillo-Chipotle Salsa (Salsa de Tomatillo Asado con Chile Chipotle)
In this healthy salsa recipe, tomatillos are softened on the grill and slightly charred for smoky flavor. To vary the heat in this salsa recipe, use 1 teaspoon of chipotle powder for mild and up to 3 for a little kick in the pants. Serve with grilled chicken, steak and fish or use as sauce for tacos, enchiladas or tostadas.
Make Ahead Tip: Hold at room temperature for up to 2 hours or refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. Look for ground chipotle chile powder with other specialty spices in large supermarkets.
Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won't stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
