    3                    serrano peppers
    4                    tomatillos
    4      cloves        garlic
    5                    tomatoes -- fresh or canned
      1/2  cup           cilantro
                         salt
                         juice from one lime or lemon
 
 If you can use a molcajete, do, otherwise use a blender for waterier
 salsa. Toast peppers (put them on a hot skillet, turning them as they
 blister, until they are evenly blistered).  Remove papery outer skin of
 tomatillos and simmer until they turn from green to yellowish olive
 green (about 5 minutes). Mash or blend garlic cloves.  Add the peppers
 and the tomatillos.  Add tomatoes.  Add cilantro.  Add salt and lime or
 lemon juice to taste. Variations: add 1/2 onion.  Use a blend of hot
 peppers (jalapenos, thai). If you remove the seeds after toasting the
 peppers, they won't be as hot. In general, the smaller the chile, the
 hotter it is.
