Process garlic in food processor until garlic is minced. Add jalapeño pepper to garlic; process until minced, stopping once to scrape down sides.

Cut avocado in half, and remove seed; cut avocado into quarters, and peel. Add tomatillos, avocado, and remaining 3 ingredients to jalapeño pepper mixture. Process 15 seconds or until tomatillos are pureed. Cover and chill 1 hour.
