Broiling or grilling the tomatillos for a short time brings out the rustic and charred flavors. For this recipe, you mix the tomatillo, jalapeño, and garlic together until browned and charred, but be careful to not char the garlic! You do not want burnt garlic.

Great for Taco Tuesday!

This Avocado Salsa Verde is a new family favorite that will leave your guests talking for days (and months). The salsa is a little thicker because it has avocados in it. And of course it’s great for Taco Tuesday!

If you love a good guac, and you’re a salsa lover, then combine those two together for this zippy recipe!

How to Store Avocado Salsa Verde

Store in an airtight container for up to 3 to 5 days in the fridge. The lime juice in the recipe prevents any browning. Even if the avocados did make it a little brown, it’s still safe to eat. Just stir with a spoon and dig in.

We grew tomatillos in our garden when we lived in the Rogue Valley! They were delicious. We also grew our own tomatoes and canned many-a-jar of salsa, and we gave it away.

How To Grow Tomatillos

Tomatillos are very different from a tomato. They have little paper wrappings around each one as they grow on the vine. They start out very small, and as they grow, they fill in the paper wrappings until they are tight, full, and ripe.

Tomatillos are very tart, and much firmer than tomatoes.

This crisp, cool salsa refreshment is perfect for Taco Tuesday, if you’re hosting (even for just drinks and chips and salsa), or to add to a taco board.

We recently ate outside with our plates full of tacos, beans, and rice.

The leftover salsa (that we devoured during appetizers), we spooned on our tacos for a delicious treat.
