3 Roma Tomatoes

3 Tomatillos (remove outer skin)

6 Jalapeno or Serrano peppers

1 Clove of Garlic

1 Large Onion (1/2 of onion should be diced)

1/4 bunch cilantro (chopped)

1/2 Lime (Just the juice)

Salt (to taste)

1/4 Cup Water


Using a frying pan without oil, add the tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, garlic, and half of the onion cut into 4 pieces, and heat over medium-high heat. Turn the ingredients every 2 minutes and roast until the tomatoes and tomatillos start to have dark spots and the skin starts to peel.

Remove the frying pan from the heat and peel the tomatoes and tomatillos, setting aside and allowing to cool for a few minutes.

Add the onion, garlic and a pinch of salt to the molcajete, food processor, or blender and grind or blend briefly before adding the peppers a little bit at a time.

Next add the tomatoes and tomatillos until a smooth paste is formed.

Add the water and lemon juice and additional salt to taste.

Serve directly in the molcajete or in another bowl, adding the rest of the diced onion and cilantro and stirring to combine.
