Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Step 2

Spread the tomatillos, garlic, jalapenos, bell pepper, poblano and onion on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and toss everything to coat. Roast until the vegetables are soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes.

Step 3

Remove the seeds from the peppers. Put all of the roasted vegetables and the cilantro into a food processor or blender. Process until still a bit chunky. Thin with some water if it is too thick. Stir in the lime zest and juice. Let cool completely.

Step 4

Use immediately or pour into freezer bags, label and freeze.
