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.

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