This was a great base but I did a few things different. First, I used slightly more than 1lb of tomatillos and I also added 2 opoblano peppers. I roasted those in the oven together for 30 minutes on 350 and just used some EVOO and S&P on them. Once the tomatillos becaome soft I took them out and put them in my food processor. I added 1/2 cups of water and the juice of 5 limes to that mixture. I also added a few tablespoons of white vinegar for balance. 1tsp of salt, 1tsp of cumin and 1 tsp of dry oregano. I used probably half of a medium sized red onion, about half of a bushel of cilantro, 3-4 cloves of fresh garlic and 2 serrano peppers. I then pulsed until my desired consistency and put in a saucepan. Brought the mixture to a boil and then put on low/simmer for 10 minutes to blend the flavors. Perfect! Heat had a bite at the end but went away quickly so I would say that is perfect! Do not add all of that water unless you want soup. The tomatillos are full of water.
