Hello my pretties! Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE spicy food. There is a lovely little company called True Foods LV and they make a fantastic Guacamojito Salsa that I can NOT get enough of. However, in a pinch, I decided to try to come up with a version to get me through the tough times when I’ve been unable to get to the Farmer’s Market or the local Whole Foods is sold out. My salsa is a work in progress. I tinker with recipes a lot until I settle and will likely do the same with this one, however, I was quite pleased with the results of this little weekend throw together.
- 1 lb. tomatillos (or more if you want it thinner)
- 1-2 jalapeno peppers (or more if you like it spicy – I do so I use 2 large)
- 1/3 bunch cilantro
- 1/2 a medium white onion
- 1-2 garlic cloves (I typically add more because I love garlic)
- 1-2 medium avocados
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. pepper
- Lime juice
Peel and wash the tomatillos. Most often, you can find them in the grocery store by the cilantro and peppers. They have a husk on them that needs to be removed first. Cut them into quarters and place them into a blender of food processor. Add the jalapeno – I remove the stem but leave the seeds and veins in tact due to heat preference. Follow up with cilantro, onion, garlic, avocados, pepper, salt, and juice of one lime. To prevent the avocado from sticking to the blade, I place them in last. You might need to work the blender or food processor a bit if the vegetables block the blades, but, once it gets going the juice will help move the other ingredients around. You can serve it immediately, however, I find like with most foods, it tastes better once it’s had a chance to let the flavors meld. Pour it into a bowl and refrigerate. Enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips and cerveza, or use it as a garnish on grilled fish, chicken, or carne asada! Yum!
Be sure to stop on over to my other Tasty Tuesday partners in crime and see what they are dishing up this week!
