"This is a green salsa I learned while in Mexico. It is a green salsa with avocado and it is delicious! I always make it when we do carne asada. I am always begged for the recipe. Enjoy!"

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and stir in tomatillos and jalapenos. Boil until tomatillos turn bright green and soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Place cilantro, avocados, cooked tomatillos, and cooked jalapenos into a blender, working in batches if necessary. Blend until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add about 1 tablespoon of tomatillo cooking water, or as needed, if salsa is too thick.
  3. Stop the blender, and season the salsa with garlic powder and salt to taste. Blend again briefly to mix in the seasonings. Transfer to a bowl for serving.

I just made this and it's excellent!! I used how ever many tomatillos I had from my garden (they're smaller than you'd usually get from the grocery store) and it tastes awesome! Especially love this because I didn't have to skin the tomatillos and peppers (a big pain in the butt for some of the smaller ones that I had). I also added the juice from one lime; I like the subtle citrus that it adds to guac and salsas.

I changed it a little,, added two slices of red onion diced small and two TBLSP. Lime Juice. I don't like avocados but this is very good.
