Tomatillos are Mexican tomatoes, known as Mexican husk tomatoes. They are green, unripe and have a tart flavor. I first got to know about the recipe from my friend, who is a chef in Mexico. This recipe is much better than that of packaged sauce as everything used is fresh.

To make canned tomatillos sauce, blend tomatillos, poblano peppers, jalapeno peppers, onion, chicken broth and garlic. Boil the mixture in a stockpot and add lime juice, oregano and seasoned salt. Put the mixture into a jar and immerse in hot water for 20-25 minutes. The sauce is ready.
