Avocado Salsa

Avocado Salsa

Fresh tomatillos bring tanginess to this silky avocado salsa, and that acidity keeps the blend green even after days in the fridge. For more heat, double the chiles and keep all their seeds. If you don’t have a food processor, you can make this in a blender, but you may need to add a splash of water to purée the ingredients at the start.

  1. Step 1

    Combine the tomatillos, onion, epazote, chiles, lime juice and salt in a food processor or mortar. Process or pound until very smooth. Add the avocado and pulse or pound until smooth. Taste, and add more lime juice and salt, if desired.
  2. Step 2

    Use immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed against its surface for up to 3 days. Use as a dip for chips, or drizzle over scrambled eggs, tacos, burritos or tortas. Spoon over grilled seafood, steak, chicken, pork or vegetables.
