    2                    green habaneros -- seeded and chopped
                         (or more)
    1      med-          lrg onion -- chopped
    4      cloves        garlic -- minced
      1/2  cup           fresh coriander -- chopped
    2      tbsp          minced fresh basil -- (2 to 3)
    1      tsp           kosher salt -- pepper to taste
    1      tsp           ground coriander
    1      tsp           ground cumin
    1      tbsp          oil
      1/4  cup           water or stock
 
 Peel the skin off the tomatillas and wash off sticky surface. Heat oven to
 500 degrees. Put washed tomatillas on a pan and cook for 15 min. Cool, then
 throw all in the blender and blend until smooth.
 While cooking tomatillas saute all the other stuff in the oil and water.
 Pour the blended tomatillas into the pot with the vegys and simmer about
 30min. The sauce can be left as is or put in the blended to make a smooth sauce
