This is one of my favorite sauces, & I'm not sure where I first found the recipe a couple months ago, but it popped up in my fb feed from America's Test Kitchen, & I made it again today - this time with canned tomatillos. I couldn't tell the difference between canned & fresh but the sauces weren't side-by-side. The tomatillos certainly have a bright flavor though.

This stuff would be perfect on any kind of tacos, salsa for chips/nachos, or anything with a Mexican flair. The grocery store I went to today, they had a sad selection of peppers compared to normal - the pasillas & jalapenos had seen better days, but they had a big selection of shishi to peppers that I've had before so I got those.

ATK version:

1 avocado
8 oz tomatillos
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, including stems
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 minced garlic clove
3/4 tsp salt

add everything to the food processor & process for 1 minute until smooth.


If you can't see the ATK version, this one from the food network looks very similar. There are others that add onion & other things, seems to be a very versatile & forgiving sauce.



Here's what it looked like on my chorizo & potato tacos:
