Posted on: 30/01/2017


Prep time: 5 min

Inactive prep time: 1 hr

Cook time: 10 min

Yield: 2 cups

Level: Easy


6 tomatillos, husks removed and halved

2 poblano chiles, halved and seeded

1 bunch scallions, trimmed

Vegetable oil, for drizzling

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup tequila

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Juice of 1 lime

Tortilla chips, for serving


Place the tomatillos, poblanos and scallions on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Place under the broiler and cook until well charred, turning once, about 5 minutes per side. When cool enough to handle, remove the skin from the poblanos.

Add the charred vegetables to a food processor along with the tequila, chili powder, lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper. Pulse until smooth but still slightly chunky. Remove to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour or overnight. Serve with tortilla chips.
