    Preheat Broiler.Lay the Tomatillos, Garlic, and Onions on a baking sheet lined with a rimmed piece of tinfoil.Place the sheet under the broiler for 7 minutes – check if anything is burning, needs to be turned or removed. Broil another 7 minutes.After 14 minutes, remove the onions and place them in a blender. Remove the garlic and let cool. 
    Turn the tomatillos using tongs. Broil the tomatillos another 5 minutes.Remove the partially roasted garlic cloves from their paper skins – add to blender with the onions. Add the roasted tomatillos to the blender, along with all the juices that have accumulated in the rimmed tinfoil.Add 2-5 roasted Pueblo green chiles to the blender (you might want to experiment, start with just 2-3 and adjust according to your taste. You could always add sour cream or an avocado if it gets too spicy to enjoy).
    Blend until uniform. Pour into a bowl and serve alongside chips, use as an enchilada sauce, or freeze your Pueblo Chile Salsa Verde for later use!
