Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Toss the tomatillos with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and place on a baking sheet. Roast until nicely charred, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Combine the tomatillos, 1/4 cup water, cumin, salt, avocado, garlic, jalapenos, onions, lime juice and cilantro in a blender and puree until completely smooth. Place in the refrigerator and allow the sauce to settle before serving.
