Guajillo peppers are well-loved for their smokiness and tea-like sweetness, and it’s these two flavors that make it such an excellent salsa pepper. Here mixed with tomatillo, this guajillo salsa has a sweet tang with a trailing smoke. It’s excellent finely blended and served with tortilla chips, or try it as a salsa topping for burritos or enchiladas.
- 6 guajillo chilies
- 12 tomatillos husks removed and roughly chopped
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 white onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
