Avocado Two Ways: Chunky Guacamole and Tomatillo Salsa 3

Avocado is one of my favorite things to eat, and it’s found in two of my favorite dips. When I was in Mexico, I pretty much lived on this guacamole. Luckily, the resort that I was staying at had a “class” where they thought us how to make it so I can have it all the time! The tomatillo salsa is based on one from Rick Bayless. Its a nice change from a more traditional tomato-based salsa. Make these both and have an instant fiesta! It’ll bring a little bit of summertime fun and flavor into your fall.

Chunky Guacamole

  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 plum tomato, seeded and diced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 small hand full of cilantro, chopped
  • sea salt to taste

Combine all ingredients. Mix well so that the avocado gets slightly mashed. Season to taste with sea salt.

Tomatillo Salsa

  • 4 tomatillos, husked
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 jalapenos
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 avocado, diced

Combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth, adding up to 1/4 cup of water if needed. Stir in the avocado.
