Ingredients

  • 6 tomatillos husk removed, rinsed
  • 1/2 onion
  • 4 cloves garlic unpeeled
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 1 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 1 avocado ripe; halved, seed and flesh removed
  • 2 limes juice only
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees (roast option). On a rimmed baking sheet, place the tomatillos, onions, garlic and jalapeño - drizzle with a little oil. Roast in the oven for 10-12 minutes - the tomatillos will be soft and squishy, with the exterior being blistered.
  • Remove from the oven. Scrape the seeds out of the jalapeño, and squeeze the garlic out of the peel - add everything to the blender along with your cilantro and avocado. Pulse until combined.
  • Taste, then add salt - and pulse an additional time, adding lime juice as needed for flavor (totally optional).
  • Serve with chips.

Notes

  • Recipe makes 1.5 C.
