fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded, deveined, and finely minced
chopped fresh cilantro
avocado, peeled and pitted
tomatillos, husked and chopped
I used this recipe as a base, but I made significant changes. I roasted the tomatillos after cutting them in half and putting them face down on a baking pan. I cooked them until the tops were brown and they were soft. I combined them with a ripe avocado, half a bunch of cilantro, salt, lime, and 1/4 of a white onion in the blender. I omitted garlic because I find garlic to overpower the other flavors, even though I usually love garlic. The resulting salsa is amazing!!
WOW! I followed this to a tee. It is much better than those good mexican resturants serve with their chips. It is a keeper. No changes needed. A+
Instead of using water, try sour cream. It makes it a little richer but also a little thicker. I left out the garlic too as a personal thing. Very good though. And I agree...It's meant to be consumed with chips!
I'm giving this a 4 because my boyfriend really liked it. I didn't like it so well, however. I wish I had used more avocado, because, as is, I could barely taste it. I added a little cumin to improve the flavor. The ingredients don't need to be minced, since they're going into the food processor, anyway. Save yourself some time and just roughly chop them.
A squeeze of lime juice really does the trick to keeping the avocado a nice green color!
This recipe was really good. I added an extra avocado as one other reviewer suggested, and I'm glad I did. Next time will add juice of lime as well. This was too thick for my blender, and my food processor was too small, so had to do it in 2 batches. It was gone in 2 days!
I really like this recipe. The avocado adds a creaminess that's unexpected and the heat isn't too hot. I didn't put in as much cilantro and added lemon juice in hopes it'll keep the avocado from browning in the fridge. Next time I'll add lime if I remember to pick some up.
Love this! And I did add lime...
