  • 1 lb tomatillos peeled and washed
  • 3 serrano peppers
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • 1 big bunch of cilantro
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Cut tomatillos in quarters and peppers in half. Put them all in a pot with the water and bring to boil, reduce heat a little to maintain a gentle boil and cook until soft. You will know they are ready when they change from bright green to olive green.
  • Pour tomatillos and chiles (without the water, but save it), onion, cilantro, avocados (peeled and seeded) and salt into a blender or food processor. Mix until well blended. Check for texture and salt, if it is too chunky for your taste, add some of the saved water from the pot.
  • Pour in a container and refrigerate until cool. That's it!


You can keep this avocado salsa, which is not the same thing as guacamole, in the fridge for 2-3 days or in the freezer for a month.
