  2. 1/2 large white onion, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
  3. 3 garlic cloves
  4. 3 chiles de arbol or other dried red chiles, plus more if desired
  5. Coarse salt
  1. Place tomatillos in a large saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to simmer until tomatillos have softened but not burst, about 5 minutes. Reserve 1 cup cooking liquid. Strain tomatillos through a fine sieve.
  2. Puree tomatillos, onion, garlic, chiles, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 cup reserved cooking liquid in a blender or food processor until smooth. For a thinner consistency, add remaining cooking liquid. Season with salt to taste.
