Description

The addition of avocados gives this salsa verde an ultra velvety texture.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Large Onions
  • 2-½ pounds Tomatillos, Husked And Rinsed
  • 10 cloves Garlic, Peeled
  • 4 whole Jalapenos
  • 3 whole Avocados
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 4 teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Packed Fresh Cilantro
  • Lime Juice (optional)

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 450ºF.

Peel and chop the onions into quarters. Place the tomatillos, onions, garlic and jalapenos on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil.

Roast in the oven for 15 minutes, until the exteriors are blistered but the insides are still slightly raw.

Meanwhile, halve the avocados, remove the seeds, and scoop out the flesh.

Cut the jalapenos in half and scrape out the seeds. Discard seeds.

Place HALF of the tomatillos, onions, jalapenos and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until mostly smooth.

Add HALF of the cumin, salt, cilantro and avocado. Pulse until the avocado is pureed into the mixture.

Taste for salt.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

If you desire an extra tart quality, add a bit of lime juice at the end.

Makes 4 quarts.

The color on this is beautiful I cannot wait to make it. I am curious though, are you canning this with a heat method and sealing them?

Seriously, people, make this salsa! It is awesome and everyone that tastes it, loves it! Side benefit, the roasting part of the recipe makes your house smell fantastic. I will be making this again and again.
