6 tomatillos, husks removed and blanched

2 cloves garlic

1 to 2 serrano chiles, seeded and minced, or any other medium to hot pepper

2 ripe avocados, peeled and sliced

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 onion, minced

1 lime, juiced


  1. In a large mortar and pestle, grind together the tomatillos, garlic, and seranno chiles until almost paste-like. Alternatively, mash together in a medium-sized bowl. Add sliced avocados and mash, leaving some lumps for a chunkier texture. Add cilantro and onion and combine. Finish by adding lime juice, to taste.
