Tomatillo & Avocado Salsa


Yields about 1 cup.

This salsa can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days. It’s also tasty on pork tacos or with quesadillas.

  • 1 medium tomatillo, husked, washed, and coarsely chopped
  • 1 Tbs. thinly sliced scallion
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. seeded and minced serrano chile; more to taste
  • 1 large ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and coarsely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Put the tomatillo, scallion, garlic, and serrano chile in a food processor and whirl until finely chopped, about 15 seconds. Add the avocado and pulse until just combined. The salsa should be chunky. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and more chile.

I can't see the recipe. Just the picture. This is second recipe where this has happened. First one was a quesadilla recipe. If this keeps happening, I'll find other cooking sites.:)

I would like to get this recipe as well. I am a member but cannot get the ingredient list to come up.

I would like to rate, if I could get to VIEW the recipe. I have tried for about 30 minutes to see it. I have logged in a number of times to no avail.

This is the real Guacamole I learned to make when living at my parents in Mexico city! I usually add much more cilantro, and a tea spoon of powder broth to increase tastiness. It's a shame that I cant find tomatillos in the Netherlands.

I put this on a different veggie burger than the recipe that goes with this salsa, and it was great. I used hot sauce since I didn't have and hot pepper. A delicious topping for any kind of burger, or just a dip!
