Made with fresh tomatillos, serrano pepper, cilantro, and avocado, Avocado Salsa Verde will be a hands-down favorite with party-goers. Serve Avocado Salsa Verde with your favorite chips or with our Beef Empanadas.
1 to 1 1/4 pounds tomatillos (about 10)
1/4 sweet onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves
1 serrano pepper or jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 avocado, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
How to Make It
Peel husks from tomatillos, and rinse with cool water until they no longer feel sticky. Cut into chunks, and place in a food processor.
Add onion, garlic, and serrano pepper; process until mixture is very finely chopped. Add cilantro and lime juice; process until finely chopped. Add avocado and salt; pulse until blended.
This is quick, easy, super flavorful, and it keeps for a god week+ in the fridge even with the avocado. This makes a delicious condiment for more than just chips. Try it on baked potatoes, grits, steamed veggies, and more. I can't go back to salsa verde in the jar. Thanks to the Happy Herbivore for bringing this great recipe to my attention!
