  • De-stem, de-vein, and de-seed the chiles. Don't worry if you miss a few stray seeds.
  • Place the chiles in a pot of cool water, along with the garlic, and tomatillos. Bring to a low boil, then remove from heat and let soak for 20 minutes.
  • While your chiles, tomatillos and garlic soaks, preheat your broiler on high. Place the red tomatoes in a broiler pan and put in the oven with the rack at its highest point. Broil until blackened on all sides.
  • Strain the chiles, garlic, and tomatillos, then place the chiles, the garlic, and 1/2 the tomatillos in the blender, and puree on high until everything is completely liquified. Remove, then press back into the blender jar through a fine mesh sieve.
  • Add the garlic, the remaining tomatillos, the red tomatoes, and the salt. Puree to a chuky consistency.
  • Stir in the finely diced onions, then serve.
