For the green salsa, you'll need:
1 lb tomatillos, skins removed, rinsed
1 bunch cilantro
1-2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
2-4 jalapeno chiles, stemmed and seeded, roughly chopped
Lime
Salt

Place tomatillos on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil until softened and blackened in places.  Turn over the tomatillos and allow the other side to blacken a bit too.  Then, put the tomatillos, along with any accumulated juices, into your blender.  Add the cilantro, garlic, and jalapenos, and blend until smooth.  The cilantro gives this salsa a deep emerald color.  You can add more or less, depending on your preference.  Finish the salsa by pouring it into a bowl and adding fresh squeezed lime juice and salt to taste.  This salsa is so simple, yet ridiculously good.
We do this same thing, but we like to add some avocado to it - excellent!  Sometimes some roasted onions too.  Yum. ;D

+1 with the broiling! Tasty...

You can do this with tomato salsa. Everything goes under the broiler to char. Process without peeling- just darkened skin that flakes off is discarded. Very concentrated salsa- thin with a bit of water if desired.
The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool. -Richard P. Feynman

Oh man, avocados sound like a great addition.  I'll definitely give that a shot sometime!
