"This is a green salsa I learned while in Mexico. It is a green salsa with avocado and it is delicious! I always make it when we do carne asada. I am always begged for the recipe. Enjoy!"

  • Ready In

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and stir in tomatillos and jalapenos. Boil until tomatillos turn bright green and soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Place cilantro, avocados, cooked tomatillos, and cooked jalapenos into a blender, working in batches if necessary. Blend until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add about 1 tablespoon of tomatillo cooking water, or as needed, if salsa is too thick.
  3. Stop the blender, and season the salsa with garlic powder and salt to taste. Blend again briefly to mix in the seasonings. Transfer to a bowl for serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Serve either warm or cold the next day. Add the avocado pits to the finished salsa to keep it from browning in refrigerator.

Very nice and oh so easy. Thanks I didn't change a thing.

I just made this and it's excellent!! I used how ever many tomatillos I had from my garden (they're smaller than you'd usually get from the grocery store) and it tastes awesome! Especially lov...

I changed it a little,, added two slices of red onion diced small and two TBLSP. Lime Juice. I don't like avocados but this is very good.

I doubled all ingredients and flavored to our liking we absolutely loved it and got compliments on it. So easy although I agree that making it in batches makes for less of a mess.

Made this for father`s day barbeque and drizzled on carne Assada tacos-everyone loved it-followed the recipe exactly

Fantastic dip! So easy to make. Followed advice and used 1/3 bunch of cilantro. The recipe makes a lot, but it's so good you need a lot. I'm making more tonight!
