Tasty Tomatillo Guacamole


  • 6fresh tomatillos, husks discarded and tomatillos rinsed
  • 1white onion, quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2jalapeno peppers, seeded if desired
  • 1 ½ cups water, or amount to cover
  • salt to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, or to taste
  • 3ripe avocados, halved lengthwise and pitted
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Place tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapeno peppers into a saucepan over medium heat, and pour in enough water to cover. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the tomatillos soften and change color from bright green to a yellow-green color, 5 to 8 minutes.


  • Step 2

    With a slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the tomatillo mixture moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute; mix in salt, cilantro, and lime juice. Blend again for a few seconds just to mix.

  • Step 3

    Scoop out the avocado flesh, and place into the blender; blend until well mixed. Adjust salt, cilantro, and lime juice before serving.
