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.

  • 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

Step 1

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.
