November the 20th is the celebration of the Mexican Revolution. It took place in 1910, the people rose up in arms against the President Porfirio Diaz who had been in power for over 30 years. Inspired by my country, I decided to cook a Spicy Tomatillo Salsa. This salsa will add flavor to your quesadillas, tacos, sandwiches, nachos, eggs, and you name it!

Turn them so they roast all around.

When the chiles are browned all around put them in a plastic bag so they sweat. Some may be ready before others. This whole process will take about 30 minutes.

Under running water, peel the thin skin from the chiles. When you finish wash your hands, you don’t want to end up with chile in your eyes!
