Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

Perfect blend of flavors with the tomatillos, jalapeño peppers, onion and avocado. The lime gives it a little tartness, and helps help the salsa from turning brown. Add lots of fresh cilantro, if you like it.

Ingredients

  • 6 to 8

    tomatillos, peeled, washed and roughly chopped

  • 2 to 3

    serrano or jalapeño peppers, roughly chopped, removing seeds is optional for a more mild salsa

  • 1/4

    of a white onion, chopped

  • 2

    large avocado

  • Handful of washed cilantro (I like a lot of cilantro for this recipe)

  • Juice of 1 large lime

  • Salt to taste

  • Optional: Fresh minced garlic

Directions

Combine all of the ingredients in the blender. Blend on high until smooth. Taste for salt. I sometimes will add a tiny bit of water for easier blending. Yields about 4 cups if using 2 avocados. Tip: For a taquería-style avocado salsa, poach the tomatillos, chiles and onions until soft. Let cool, then blend as directed with remaining fresh ingredients.
