  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 4 tomatillos chopped
  • 3 avocados
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup diced onion plus more for topping
  • 1/4 cup fresh torn cilantro plus more for topping
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice or more if needed
  • tortilla chips for serving


  • Take your jalapeño pepper and either place it under the broiler on a baking sheet for a few minutes until it is charred, or heat it over your gas stovetop until charred. Place the pepper in a ziplock bag and let it "steam" for 10 minutes. Remove the pepper and rub off the charred skin, then slice it up. If you want it super spicy, leave in the seems!
  • Combine the pepper, tomatillos, avocados, garlic, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper in the food processor. Blend until combined and pureed. With the processor on, add in the lime juice until the mixture thins out a bit and is smooth. Transfer the salsa to a bowl and top with additional diced onion, cilantro and pepper slices.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips!
