Preheat the broiler. Place the tomatillos and tomatoes on a baking sheet. Broil, turning occasionaly, until charred all over, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a saucepan along with the remaining ingredients.

Bring to a boil and cook until the onions are soft, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a food processor or blender. Puree and then strain. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled. Arbol sals can be stored in the refridgerator 3 to 5 days or frozen for weeks.
