  • Ready In

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and stir in tomatillos and jalapenos. Boil until tomatillos turn bright green and soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Place cilantro, avocados, cooked tomatillos, and cooked jalapenos into a blender, working in batches if necessary. Blend until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add about 1 tablespoon of tomatillo cooking water, or as needed, if salsa is too thick.
  3. Stop the blender, and season the salsa with garlic powder and salt to taste. Blend again briefly to mix in the seasonings. Transfer to a bowl for serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Serve either warm or cold the next day. Add the avocado pits to the finished salsa to keep it from browning in refrigerator.

Very nice and oh so easy. Thanks I didn't change a thing.

I changed it a little,, added two slices of red onion diced small and two TBLSP. Lime Juice. I don't like avocados but this is very good.

Made this for father`s day barbeque and drizzled on carne Assada tacos-everyone loved it-followed the recipe exactly

I made exactly as per the recipe (except I used fresh minced garlic) and wow, this is very YUMMY! Used as both a condiment on my carne asada tacos and to dip my tortilla chips in. This one will ...

Fresh and delish! My picky crew eats in on chips and tacos.

Made it just as it is posted. Delicious! Salsa perfection :)

Yummy, I added some chopped red onion to add a little something other than that followed directions. And it was perfect

I doubled all ingredients and flavored to our liking we absolutely loved it and got compliments on it. So easy although I agree that making it in batches makes for less of a mess.
