About this recipe: This is the ultimate fresh, green salsa. The addition of avocado gives it a wonderful creaminess!
I used this recipe as a base, but I made significant changes. I roasted the tomatillos after cutting them in half and putting them face down on a baking pan. I cooked them until the tops were brown and they were soft. I combined them with a ripe avocado, half a bunch of cilantro, salt, lime, and 1/4 of a white onion in the blender. I omitted garlic because I find garlic to overpower the other flavors, even though I usually love garlic. The resulting salsa is amazing!! - 19 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
WOW! I followed this to a tee. It is much better than those good mexican resturants serve with their chips. It is a keeper. No changes needed. A+ - 07 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Instead of using water, try sour cream. It makes it a little richer but also a little thicker. I left out the garlic too as a personal thing. Very good though. And I agree...It's meant to be consumed with chips! - 18 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
