Salsa Verde (for the hot pepper intolerant)

So, I am ready to admit that I have BAD reactions to most hot peppers. I have temporarily lost my eyesight, but most often get swollen lips and burning fingers. It's just not worth it. I have played around with different salsas and think I have finally found something that I love.

7-8 Tomatillos, husks removed, washed well, sliced in half across the equator
1 small-medium onion, cut into thick slices
2 Cloves garlic
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste

Lay a piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Spread tomatillos, cut side down, on foil along with the onion slices and the whole cloves of garlic. Broil for about minutes or until vegetables are just browned.

Transfer all vegetables along with juices into food processor. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pulse several times until you get the consistency that you want. Serve with tortilla chips or pour over enchiladas. I am guessing this will can well.
