This is another great recipe from Sabrosa which is a local entertainment and dining guide. The tomatillos give this an almost citrusy bite. It is a great sauce for spooning on tacos, serving with chips or garnishing your favorite soup or beans. Leave the seeds in the jalapeno if you want this really "hot".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the tomatillos, garlic, cilantro, green onions, jalapenos and salt in the blender or food processor container.
  2. Pulse until onions are processed, about 10 to 15 seconds.
  3. Pulse a few more times in needed, but be careful and not over process.
  4. Pour mixture into an airtight container, and chill for 1 to 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
  5. Before serving, add the cubed avocado.
  6. The cook time reflects the chilling time.

Very good, very healthy. I make this again and again while I have tomatillo's on hand and alter the amount of avocado depending on if they are in season. Yum!

Not too spicy and gets a great tart flavor from the tomatillos.I loved the addition of the avocados. So much better than store bought. Thanks Paula

Good gosh a mighty. This was excellent Paul. I don't think I have ever had a better Salsa Verde. I'll never buy store bought again. Love the flavor. The tomatillos gave this a fabulous touch. I was going to add som lime juice but it didn't need a thing. I forgot to add the avocado but I don't think that hurt it a bit. Thanks so much. This went great with Chicken Enchiladas.
