Tomatillo Guacamole


Fresh guacamole is a classic go-to party food, and a true crowd-pleaser. It's simple, nutritious, and easy to prepare. Change up the usual flavor profile with this recipe which gets added tang from the green tomatillos!

Tip: Though there’s no real way to keep guacamole from turning brown eventually, you can slow the process by placing a layer of plastic wrap directly over the top of the guacamole, and by keeping it cold—even while serving.
