Tomatillos give a bit of tang to this avocado dip. Hass avocados, with their pebbly skin, are generally smaller, meatier, and less watery than their smooth skinned counterpart, the Fuerte.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Put tomatillos, onion, and jalapeno in a small saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tomatillos are softened and pale green, about 5 minutes. Drain, run under cold water to stop cooking, and drain well.

  • Halve jalapeno lengthwise. For a milder dip, scrape out ribs and seeds. Thickly slice jalapeno. Transfer to food processor along with tomatillo mixture and cilantro, and pulse until small chunks remain.

  • Halve avocados lengthwise and discard pits. Scoop out flesh and transfer to a bowl. Using a potato masher or fork, mash avocado along with salt until chunky. Fold in tomatillo mixture and serve.

Cook's Note:

The dip can be made a couple of hours ahead.

I forgot that I didn't have a jalapeno so I added a new jalapeno powder that I picked up in New Mexico when I was there. Otherwise I followed the ingredients as written. We thought this was a first-class guac! Thanks so much for sharing this! Read More

A simple twist on the typical guac. The mild acidity of the tomatillos lets you really taste the avocado. I added a bit more salt and a few chopped yellow cherry tomatoes. Read More

Easy and good twist on regular tomatillo sauce. My immersion blender worked great in place of the food processor. I always use a pastry cutter to mash up avocados as it works great. I did add a bit of lemon juice. I did not do it this time but may try adding some minced garlic next time. Read More
