I love guacamole. Unfortunately, I'm the only one in my house to love it! So when I make it, I do it in small batches, or I'd be eating it for days! I found this guacamole recipe on Whats Gaby Cooking, and thought it sounded super yummy. I love avocados. I love tomatillos. How could I lose?
This does take a little longer because you are roasting the tomatillos. If you've never used tomatillos before, they are a very versatile, easy vegetable. They look like green tomatoes, but have a papery covering.
They are the main ingredient in Salsa Verde, or green, salsa. They can be eaten raw or cooked- roasting is recommended. This guacamole is more sweet than I'm used to, so plan for that. It is great on chips, but also on veggies!
