Creamy Avocado Tomatillo SalsaIf your like most people, you’ve probably never quite figured out how to use tomatillos. You may have seen them in the supermarket and wondered what those green tomatoes are used for. Well this the perfect way to try them out.

This avocado and tomatillo salsa is unlike any other salsa you’ve had before. It’s creamy and looks very much like guacamole which makes it great for dipping. It requires no cooking at all and comes together in under 5 minutes. It’s great on tacos, burritos, salads, steak, or chicken.

To make the salsa, simply pulse tomatillos, avocado, Serrano or jalapeno pepper, onion, garlic, cilantro, and lime in your food processor until it reaches a chunky/creamy texture.

  1. Really good! Can this be frozen?

  2. This was terrific. My whole family loved it. I added a little extra salt and a little less serano.

  3. Thanks for the inspiration! I blistered and roasted the tomatillos and jalapeno beforehand, but otherwise did exactly as in the instructions, and it came out great!
