Cilantro Tomatillo Salsa

If you like spicy (picante!) food then this is one of those appetizers that you will find addictive. Combined with a bowl of chips as an appetizer, this salsa will upstage the main meal.


2 bunches of cilantro
1 large avocado
4 tomatillos
2 Jalapeňo or Serrano chiles (or 3 if you love extra spicy)
1/3 c. chunked red onion
salt to taste


Cut the tomatillos, chiles, and onion into chunks and sear them by heating a cast iron pan until it’s hot and placing the vegetables into the pan dry, turning them frequently, to slightly brown them and make them soft. Put all the ingredients into a food processor and whirl until fully blended. Add a tiny bit of water if necessary for smooth texture and ease of blending.

Eat well, be well, live deliciously!
