Creamy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

Tomatillos, jalapeños, cilantro, and avocado come together to create this spicy and creamy tomatillo avocado salsa, perfect for your next tacos, burritos, or whatever you'd like to add it to.


  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 7 medium tomatillos
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 ripe avocado


  • Boil the jalapeños, white onion, tomatillos, and garlic in plenty of water until soft, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Once soft, drain the water and let the vegetables cool.
  • Add the cooked vegetables to a blender or food processor. 
  • Add the fresh cilantro, salt and black pepper.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Add the avocado. Blend again until the avocado is incorporated fully and the salsa is a nice, smooth consistency.
  • Serve atop your favorite tacos. Also goes great in a burrito or on top of eggs.


  • For a variation in taste, roast the vegetables instead of boiling.
