INGREDIENTS

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 medium-sized zucchini, quartered lengthwise
  • 1/2 sweet onion, cut into wedges
  • 4 tomatillos, husked and halved
  • 3 large jalapeños, halved and seeded

DIRECTIONS

Preheat a gas grill on medium-high heat or prepare a charcoal grill.

Lightly spray the zucchini, onion, tomatillos, jalapeños, and poblano peppers with cooking spray. Place on the grill for 5-7 minutes, and flip and cook 5-7 more minutes, or until the vegetable skins begin to char and the vegetables are cooked through.

Place the charred zucchini, onion, tomatillos, jalapeños, poblano peppers, lime zest and juice, salt, and cayenne sauce in the bowl of a food processor. Process until very smooth. Add honey, to taste, if using. Serve at room temperature.
