Avocado Orange Juice Salsa

This is an amazing salsa....I added cilantro cause I like the flavor it adds. Also when adding the avacado I added it by hand and not pureed cause I like chunkiness. I also added about 1/4 cup of finely chopped vidalia onion. for tomatiloos you will find canned ones OR tomatillo sauce in the latin aisle section of your market. The canned tomatillos have vinegar as an ingredient so do not use the sauce as it would make the salsa bitter.

  • 8 tomatillos, roughly chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 jalapeño chiles, seeded,very finely chopped use sparingly if you are not a fan
  • juice of 1 lime (2 tablespoons)
  • juice of 1 orange (1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 ripe California avocados, peeled and seeded

Combine the tomatillos, jalapeños, lime and orange juices, salt, pepper, and a Tablespoon or two of ice water in a blender or food processor. Purée until smooth. Add the avocados and purée briefly, just until smooth. Add orange juice to thin if necessary. Goes well with crispy warmed tortilla chips

We had company stop by the other nite, yes while we are traveling we have company. Anyway they loved this salsa and took the recipe with them.
