Discard husks and rinse tomatillos. In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan, combine tomatillos and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and simmer until tomatillos are soft when pressed, 7 to 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer tomatillos to a blender or food processor; reserve cooking water.
Rinse, stem, and, if desired for less heat, seed chili. Coarsely chop chili and add to tomatillos along with 2 tablespoons cooking water; whirl until smooth.
When cool, add onions, cilantro, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. For thinner salsa, add more of the cooking water.
Recommended wine: Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sparkling Rose
Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The Alexana Revana Vineyard Pinot Noir with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 42 dollars per bottle.
