Hearty Tomatillo Salsa

I’ve been on a tomatillo kick lately and couldn’t wait to make a hearty tomatillo salsa for Super Bowl 51.  I built off a recipe from Food Network and was really happy with how it came out. This is good as a salsa, but could also top eggs or chicken.

What you’ll need:

  • 6 medium tomatillos, husked and roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, stem removed, de-seeded, and chopped
  • 5-10 sprigs of cilantro, stems removed and roughly chopped (I like cilantro, so I was more generous)
  • 1/4 cup white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • Salt, to taste


  • Place tomatillos, jalapeño, cilantro, and 1/4 cup water in a blender and pulse into a chunky but blended texture.
  • Place in a bowl (or tupperware) and add onion and cubed avocado
  • Give it a taste, salt as you see fit, and garnish with a sprig of cilantro (if you’re going for style points)
