  • 4 large tomatillos (husked and washed, see notes)
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 serrano (see notes)
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (washed)

  2. Place the tomatillos (husked and washed), serrano pepper, jalapeño pepper, 1/4 of a white onion, and the garlic clove in the boiling water.
