Not only does this dip have a kick, it's vibrant color will allure any adventurous taste buds. The first time I served this dip, it was gone in the 15 minutes.

Tomatillos are small and green with a papery husk on them. Depending on where you live, you might find them in the specialty produce section of the grocery store, or at a Mexican market. Sometimes you can buy them canned, but for this recipe, I would advise the fresh ones. Good luck! Read More

I thought this would be good but when you eat it tastes like a stink bug smells. Its the tomatillos they make the dip taste just like a stink bug not a good taste. Skip the tomatillos! Read More

I was not sure if everyone would like this and it ended up disappearing faster than anything else during the Super Bowl. The only change I made was reducing the amount of red onion I put in. This is very good! Read More

I was very impressed with this even before I served it. You could just tell as you chopped up the ingredients and mixed them up that you were going to be in for something good. I did tinker with it a little though but more just to personalize it to our tastes. I left out the "hot" stuff which Hubs doesn't tolerate well. I backed off on the onion a little so it wouldn't overwhelm added minced garlic a finely chopped jalapeno pepper a small amount of fresh cilantro and about 3/4 tsp. of cumin all flavors I typically enjoy in traditional guacamole. I also chose to leave the avocados a little chunky rather than completely mashing them. It took a fair amount of chopping for this recipe but it was worth it. I served it for a dinner get-together and everyone had at it. A real winner. Read More

I love this recipe! My husband and kids don't like guacamole but they scarf this down like you wouldn't believe! I brought some in to work for a pot luck and ended up giving copies of the recipe to several people! I even grew tomatillos in my garden after trying this and I had NEVER tried a tomatillo before! Wow!! Great recipe!! Read More

This is a delicious and seriously fresh dip. My hubby couldn't get enough of it! I made life easy and put all of the ingredients into the blender and used the pulse button. The consistency was creamy and a bit smooth. I added a whole jalapeno some cloves of garlic and some crushed red pepper on top of the hot sauce! We like it spicy! It came out delicious! Read More
