  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Roast green chiles either in a broiler or over an open flame for about 10 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Remove chiles from heat source and place into a bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap to help capture steam and let sit for 10 minutes. This will make peeling them much easier.
  4. Step 4

    When chiles have cooled off enough to be able to handle, use a piece of paper towel to gently scrape off charred skin.
  5. Step 5

    Add onions, jalapeño, and tomatillos into a food processor and pulse 4 to 5 times.
  6. Step 6

    Add roasted chiles, garlic, cilantro, salt, oil, and lime juice and pulse until desired consistency.
  7. Step 7

    Salsa verde can be served immediately but it is better when it sits in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors meld.
