Tomatillo Guacamole

Guacamole – just saying the word is fun!

Last weekend, I was asked to bring a side dish to a party. I didn’t have much time (story of my life), but I did have four soft Hass avocados sitting on my counter that were destined to be pureed into my Tomatillo Guacamole goodness.

This is one of the recipes I keep in my arsenal of dishes to bring to parties. It’s quick to make, and delicious to eat.

Are you familiar with tomatillos? They are funny looking things, wrapped in an thin paper-like casing. When you peel it off, it reveals a beautiful fruit that looks like a little green tomato. They have a delicious acidity, and are often used in Mexican cuisine.

If you have a food processor, and all the ingredients washed and ready to go, then this can be ready in ten minutes.

Ingredients:

Bam! Couldn’t be easier!

I brought it to the party with chips and carrot sticks. The next day, I had the little bit that I saved with red bell pepper sticks and cucumber sticks. It was just as good the next day.

From my family to yours, I hope you enjoy. Let me know how it goes if you do!
