A Pinterest Production :: Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

I've been slowly adding interesting recipes to my Food board on Pinterest, but I haven't recently made any until now. Be on the lookout for a lot of new recipes!

Now, this recipe came from a lady who got it from a lady at a church pot luck. The salsa was offered to guests as a garnish for their pork carnitas. I eat this as a traditional salsa, but I can imagine how delicious this would taste on Street Tacos. I've adapted this recipe from the original.

Tomatillo Avocado Salsa


1 lb. tomatillos, hulls, washed, and quartered
1/8 medium white onion
1 clove of garlic
1 jalapeno
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 avocado, peeled and seed removed
1/3 bunch of cilantro, chopped

Combine all ingredients (except avocado) in a blender or food processor, until well blended.

Add the avocado and blend until everything is nicely combined. Serve cold with chips or warm tortillas.

This makes approximately 1 quart jar and may last up to a week in the fridge (my jar barely made it through the weekend).

{If you add 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of sour cream (or more if desired), the salsa becomes a green dip like served in many Tex-Mex restaurants.}
