  • 4 tomatillos husked and rinsed
  • 1/2 - 1 raw jalapeno stem removed, seeds optional *
  • 1 avocado peeled and seed removed
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 small handful cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • In saucepan, fill water to 2 inches and boil. Add husked tomatillos and jalapeno. Cover and steam for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add tomatillos, jalapeno, and 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid to a food processor or blender. Add avocado, garlic, cilantro and salt. Blend until smooth. Add more cooking liquid to thin salsa, if desired.
  • Cool to room temperature to serve, or store in refrigerator up to two days. Best if served same day.


* I found that 1/2 jalapeno with the seeds was the perfect amount of mild heat for me
