  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 tbsp chopped white onion
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 garlic clove


  1. Broil jalapeño and tomatillos on high until they start to blacken on top (about 9 minutes). Flip halfway through.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth (a little chunky is okay if you like it).
