You can add them to ratatouille.  You can roast them in the oven with other
veggies - this is very good, btw.  You can add them to chili, if you wish -
just cut them in half and toss them in when the chili will cook for about
15 more minutes.  You can add them to a stir-fry.  I've used them in all
these ways. 

I bake chicken pieces in the oven with chunks of carrots, onion and
potatoes (with some white wine and herbs) - I add tomatillos to this when I
have them.  (We grow them so we have a lot of them sometimes.)
I haven't actually made salsa with them, but of course the classic use for
them is in salsa verde.
