    I found it pretty dull. I added lime juice to make it edible. I would've given in a lower rating but it was very cool that it didn't turn brown in the fridge! Maybe I'll throw tomatillos in my guacomole from now on. My tomatillos had a lot of water in them so I squeezed them a bit before adding them to the dip. Are you supposed to deseed them first and just add the meat or toss all the juices in?

    I made the dip and the chips and both were great. Dip has slight tang from the tomatillos. Dip went alot farther than the chips, but stayed nice and bright for a few days. Good after-work snack!

    Love this with homemade tortilla chips!! We use this in place of guacamole every time we have Mexican food. Great on enchiladas and to dip chicken & cheese quesadillas in. I make this as an afterschool snack served with wheat thins or ritz crackers.

    this dip is so easy, fresh, and a good break from the norm, without being too wild for picky eaters! it stays a perfect shade of green for several days in the fridge, and the recipe makes enough for a crowd. i love it!

    This is delicious! I may have added more cilantro and jalapeno than it called for, but it came out great! Tangy, light, and refreshing

    Fresh, extremely tasty dip. I added chopped up roasted red pepper and banana pepper and it was yummy! I am allergic to dairy so I left out the sour cream and it was still delicious.

    Fantastic combination of flavors. Love the tang of the tomatillos. I used low-fat sour cream and added a clove of minced garlic and a little lime juice. Delicious!

    This was amazing. I made it for our Superbowl party and it was a huge hit. I was a little wary of making it too far in advance as I was afraid the avocados would start to discolor. But just as the note said, the tomatillos kept that from happening and the dip remained a beautiful green the whole time. I will absolutely make this again and again!

    I have made this several times and it is always amazing.

    This was really good! I don't know if the pita chips were worth the effort, though, since this dip was just as good with blue corn tortilla chips. I will add more cilantro next time. And there will definitely be another time!
