Tomatillo-Guacamole Salsa

Adapted from The Love & Lemons Cookbook [1] by Jeanine Donofrio


My tomatillos were very small (the size of a ping pong ball). Feel free to use more or less depending on the tomatillos you find in your grocery store, farmers market, or garden.

Tomatillo Guacamole Recipe


  1. 4-5 tomatillos
    1 avocado, diced
    1/4 cup red onion, diced small
    1 garlic clove, minced
    Pinch salt
    Pinch sugar
    1 lime, zested
    Lime juice, to taste
    1 serrano pepper, chopped, to taste
    Chopped cilantro, optional, to taste


  1. Place tomatillos on a sheet pan and place in the oven. Turn oven to broil setting and bake until soft and caramelized. Allow to cool before roughly chopping.
  2. In a bowl, combine all ingredients including the cooled tomatillos. Stir gently and adjust seasoning, adding more salt, lime juice, or serrano peppers as necessary. Optionally, stir in chopped cilantro to taste.
  3. Serve immediately with chips or alongside tacos
