Salsa Verde

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.  

Salsa Verde

  • 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
