This was very good, and it seems to be a forgiving recipe. I forgot to pick up cilantro and garlic making it, so my charred veggies had to wait a day before being blended together and they still turned out great. I ended up just subbing minced garlic for the roasted cloves, I'm sure it would be even better if I had roasted the garlic like the recipe called for. I also added about half a small onion like some reviewers suggested. And I only had 2 jalapenos so I subbed a hot cherry pepper for the third. My only complaint is that it really just tasted like spicy cilantro to me. The tomatillo taste didn't really come through like I had expected. Next time I will use more tomatillos or a smaller bunch of cilantro. Thanks for the recipe! ETA: I need to change this from 4 to 5 stars. After it sat in the fridge for a few hours, the strong cilantro taste had faded and the other flavors came through. After a couple days of the flavors mingling, it was amazing! It makes for a life-changing good taco topping as well. My husband said if we had this all the time, he would never need hot sauce, the flavor of the salsa is just so much better. Next summer I am going to seek out bulk tomatillos so I can make a lot of this and can it. YUM!!
