My husband's Homemade Tomatillo Sauce Recipe has been in the family forever, and is one of those recipes where you ask yourself why would you ever buy store-bought sauce!

It comes together easily and is perfect for your weekday taco night, a potluck or even an  appetizer as we get closer to football season.

First, roast your tomatillos, jalapenos, onion and garlic cloves on a cookie sheet. The silicone liner is optional but I use this one. You will add your roasted ingredients and your cilantro to the food processor, so I think a rough chop to begin with helps the vegetables blend uniformly.

I use the Ninja Food Processor, and have absolutely loved it.  The “bowl” of the food processor is nice and wide, so that limits messes.  It also has a separate on/off switch and a lock-down bowl which must be engaged for the machine to come on. Both are nice safety features.

Do not over-blend your tomatillo sauce, since you want the final result to have somewhat of a chunky, home-style salsa texture.  The heat you end up with in your green salsa depends upon how much jalapeno has been added. We do like our salsa fairly hot, since it calls for two jalapenos but if you are sensitive to spicy foods you can always adjust to your liking.
