Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa


1/2 pound tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and quartered
1/4 to 1 fresh jalapeno chile pepper*
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup lightly-packed fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large ripe avocado, peeled and diced
1/2 cup minced onion
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice
Coarse salt to taste
* You can adjust the amount of chile peppers according to your taste.

– In a food processor, process tomatillos, chile peppers, garlic, and cilantro until coarsely chopped.
– Pour tomatillo mixture into a bowl and stir in olive oil, diced avocado, and minced onion. Add lime juice and salt to taste.
(personal note: I just put it all in the processor, still good)
– Enjoy with your favorite chips!

Tomatillo Salsa

I used the tomatillos, some cilantro,half a jalapeno,some onion, and some of the garlic in this recipe, cutting down the quantity and following the proportions loosely – Yummy! But it didn’t make much with just a few tomatillos, so when it was cooled, I added chopped tomatoes. It disappeared amid much positive feedback. 🙂 I never have to wonder what to do with tomatillos again.
