1 pound tomatillos, husks removed
1 Serrano pepper
1 jalapeno pepper
1 Anaheim pepper
1 large onion, peeled and sliced into thirds
3 cloves garlic, peeled and skewered together with a toothpick
½ cup cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon bacon fat
3 ounces chicken stock
½ teaspoon sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
  • Get your grill cooking at about 450f. 
  • Place the peppers and tomatillos on and sear them until all sides are blackened. 
  • This should take a few minutes per side. Remove and place them into a plastic bag for 5 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, grill the onion and garlic until browned (about 4 minutes a side for the onion, 1-2 for the garlic) and remove from heat. 
  • Skin, seed, and dice the peppers. 
  • Skin and quarter the tomatillos. Don’t be super picky about getting all the charred skin off, you want a little in there for flavor. 
  • Quarter the grilled onions. 
  • Place them all in a food processor and pulse them until you get a salsa like texture. 
  • Heat the bacon fat over medium high heat and then add the tomatillo mixture for 3-5 minutes. You’ll get some thick “pops” as the thick liquid heats but keep stirring. 
  • Mix in the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, letting the flavors get happy together. 
  • Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
