  2. To make salsa, place tomatillos on broiler rack and broil, turning occasionally, until softened and lightly charred, 6–8 minutes. Transfer to food processor or blender. Add cilantro, lime juice, honey, chipotles en adobo, garlic, and ⅛ teaspoon salt and pulse until smooth. Transfer salsa to small bowl and set aside.

Notes
If you prefer, you can make the salsa a day ahead and store in the refrigerator. Leave out the cilantro and stir it in just before serving for the freshest flavor.
