One of my dad’s friends apparently had tomatillos in his garden. He gave some to dad and dad, knowing my relationship with avocados, found a tomatillo guacamole recipe for me to try.
Recipe Source: Adapted from Food Network
Yield: about 1 to 1-1/2 cups
4 tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1/2 cup chopped white onion
2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped (mine was red)
2 avocados, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Boil tomatillos for five minutes, remove and let cool slightly. Seed and chop coarsely. In a food processor, pulse onion, jalapenos, tomatillos, salt, garlic powder, lemon juice, and pepper until combined. Add avocados and pulse until desired consistency. Store in refrigerator.
Note: Putting the seed of the avocado in the guacamole really works! Your guacamole won’t turn brown!
