Check out that beautiful green salsa. LOVE. I don't know why it doesn't brown, something in the tomatillos I suppose. If I were a more curious person perhaps I'd track down the culprit of this happy combo, but to be honest with you I just don't care. I love this salsa, and I will not question it's motives, I just want to eat it. And you should too. Haven't you heard all those commercials touting avocados as a "super food"? Get your super food on. For up to a week. :-)
These are tomatillos:
They kind of look like mini green tomatoes, and they have a husk on them. I found mine in the produce section, by the cilantro- ask your handy produce man if you can't seem to locate them. You will need to remove the husks, they peel off really easy and the tomatillos will feel a lil sticky. Just give them a quick rinse and they're good to go!
1 lb. tomatillos (husks removed, rinsed, and quartered)
2 avocados (diced)
1 jalapeno (or more if you want it spicier, I didn't remove the seeds)
1/3 bunch of cilantro
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
Step 1: Toss all the ingredients in the blender.
Step 2: Blend until smooth, you may have to stir the ingredients into the bottom a couple of times. I think it works best if the tomatillos are on the bottom, they liquefy quickly

If you're a chunky guacamole type of person at this point you could add some diced tomatoes, that would be super yum!
