Fresh Tomatillo Salsa (Salsa Verde)

1 small yellow onion, peeled and coarsely chopped

2 jalapeno chiles (you may substitute 4 Serrano chiles) seeded and coarsely chopped

Place the tomatillos in boiling water and cook until they are khaki colored and quite soft. Drain them and transfer to a food processor or blender. Add the remaining ingredients and puree until fairly smooth.
