So I love me some Mexican Salsa! Actually I love anything Mexican 😊 I made this salsa verde 2 different ways. I made it the traditional way and then I made it again adding avocados. They are both good so it's just a matter of preference. The salsa without the avocado is zero points. The salsa with the avocado is one point. That's assuming you eat 1/4 cup.
This is a pic of the salsa with the avocado.
- 2 jalapeno
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1/2 small onion
- 1 lb tomatillos, husks removed
- 1.5 tsp salt
- 1 oz cilantro
- 1/2 avocado
Bring 4 cups water to boil in a pot
In a cast iron pan, roast the garlic, jalapenos and onions till a little charred
add the tomatillos to the boiling water till the color turns lighter green about 10 min.
In a blender add the tomatillos and the rest of the ingredients and blend till well blended
refrigerate till cool
