Preheat broiler. Remove tomatillo husks, rinse under running water then wipe to remove stickiness. Place tomatillos in a single layer on a baking sheet with sides. Broil until slightly charred, turning once, about 7-8 minutes. Cool on baking sheet. Place tomatillos with juice in blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend to a chunky pureé.
