Guacamole Salsa

I came across this recipe on yummy blog Frosted Bake Shop. The kids weren't' quite sure of it because of the tang of the tomatillos but my husband and I loved it. We had it on chicken tacos and the next day I used it to top my taco soup and boy, that was good! It is also good with tortilla chips as a snack, with burritos or any thing else that you would put salsa on. Enjoy!
Guacamole Salsa - from Frosted Bake Shop

1 lb. tomatillos (or more if you want it thinner)
1 jalapeno pepper, cut up (remove the seeds for less spice or add more if you like it spicy)
1/3 bunch cilantro
1 thick slice of onion
1 garlic clove
1 avocado
1 tsp. salt
Peel the husks off and wash the tomatillos. Cut them into quarters and put in the blender. Add the jalapeno, cilantro, onion, garlic, avocado & salt. Be sure to put the tomatillos in the bottom of the blender and not the avocado so it doesn't stick to the blade. You might have to help it start by shaking or using a mixer at first. But, once it gets going the juice from the tomatillos will help move the other ingredients around. That is it!
The recipe says that it lasts for about a week in the fridge. It does thicken up in the fridge, so if you want it thinner grab a couple more tomatillos to mix in again. So easy and so good!!
