A flavorful guacamole that's easy to adjust to your heat or taste preferences. A little untraditional to make, but won't stay around long. Great with fresh tortilla chips or as a condiment on many Latin dishes.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapeno peppers into a saucepan over medium heat, and pour in enough water to cover. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the tomatillos soften and change color from bright green to a yellow-green color, 5 to 8 minutes.

  • With a slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the tomatillo mixture moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute; mix in salt, cilantro, and lime juice. Blend again for a few seconds just to mix.

  • Scoop out the avocado flesh, and place into the blender; blend until well mixed. Adjust salt, cilantro, and lime juice before serving.

Very easy to make quick and fun! Followed the recipe except we used one extra jalapeno and a yellow onion instead of white. Not spicy at all and the tomatillos added a nice flavor to the guacamole. Read More

Very tasty! I didn't have a white onion on hand so I used a red onion. It worked very well. We are cilantro lovers so I did add more. Very easy to make and I love the taste sorta in between a guacamole and a green salsa. Making again when I have some more tomatillos. I had to have a small bowl of it before it cooled but I know it will taste even better when it is chilled. Read More
