Oh man. My treadmill and I are going to become very close friends, thanks in large part to Mama Ray’s cooking and in small part to Chin Wah’s egg rolls. Being home reminds me of all my favorites–the recipes I’ve had so often in my life that they’ve somehow slipped to the back of my mind while I’m toiling on new ideas. But Mama Ray has also been working on new recipes while I’ve been away . . .
Roasted Tomatillo Avocado Salsa. Ummm . . . yes please?! I tried to talk Mom into doing a guest post on the blog but she opted out while still being willing to drop a little bomb of DELICIOUSNESS on the world. Her tomatillo avocado salsa just won a corporate salsa contest for the second year in a row, so the “award-winning” claim is 100% legit. And well-deserved!
This easy tomatillo avocado salsa comes together in a snap and is good on everything. (My personal favorite being beef tacos. Fo sho.) I’ve included a list of our favorite salsa-vehicles below. Mom says you can skip the roasting step and it’s still yummy, but roasting the peppers definitely gives it another whollop of flavor. And adjust the number of jalapenos and serranos based on your heat tolerance. (Mom and I tend to be surrounded by some whimpy salsa players, but we make do.)
Adding a Spike of Tomatillo Avocado Salsa Awesomeness:
- chips & dip
- tacos / burritos – fish, beef, chicken, carnitas
- salad dressing
- your thumb (ha – or is it just me that scoops up that extra drop, rather than let it go to waste on the counter?)
