Shopping List:

  • 1 lb Tomatillos
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 Serano pepper
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Lime
  • Kosher salt


  • Peel off outer leaves off the tomatillos and wash thoroughly. Once the leaves come off they might feel a little sticky which is completely normal. Give them a good wash! Cut them in quarters and set aside.
  • Wash the bunch of cilantro, tear off the stems and set aside
  • Wash the serrano pepper, cut into quarters and set aside
  • Cut the lime in half and set aside
  • Cut the avocado in half, remove pit and set aside
  • Place half the tomatillos, cilantro, serrano and avocado into a food processor, squeeze half the lime and zip it all up. Empty into a bowl and put the remaining ingredients into the food processor, zip it up and then empty into the bowl with the other ingredients. Add salt to taste.
  • Optional: If the salsa is too spicy for some, I sometimes put in a dollop of sour cream!
