Holy Guacamole!!

Or holy tomatillo is more like it. Hands down one of the best “guacamoles” I have made happened earlier this week. Huge thanks to Ali on sharing her recipe with me. I’ve never actually bought ones of these little guys, which is probably a disgrace considering where I am from (McAllen).  They are a tad different than your typical tomato since they come with a husk around them.  I recommend going out and buying at least 10 : )

Guacamole has more recently become one of my favorite dips. And since avocado is a “healthy” fat, I can always justify eating loads of it. Unfortunately for me, avocado stops being healthy when you can polish off half a bowl of it in a single setting. This recipe is amazing and takes guacamole to a whole new level of deliciousness. And, it is so much better for you.  If anyone has ever tried the Los Cucos green sauce, I would say these two are very similar. I have always wanted to know how that stuff is made, and I think this comes pretty close to it. And, I would just love to share the recipe!!

Tomatillo Guacamole

2 small avocados
5 medium tomatillos (husks removed and chopped)
3 green onion
1/2 bell pepper
1 clove garlic
fresh lime juice (to taste)
S&P (to taste)
Cayenne (if you like a kick)

In a medium size bowl, mash your avocados.  Set aside

In your food processor, pulse the tomatillos until they are pretty broken up.  Throw in the green onions, bell pepper, garlic, cilantro, and some salt and pepper.  Continue to pulse until well blended. 

Once blended, fold into the mashed avocados.  Squirt with lime juice and any additional spices you might like to add. 

I ate mine with celery sticks and regular old tortilla chips. It was love at first bite.  Seriously.  I think about it all day long at work. I know that is a little ridiculous, but it is that good. 

On an even more exciting note, it’s Thursday. We are so close to the weekend.  Although I love travelling and seeing friends on the weekends, I am really excited to just stay in town.  I’m going to a wedding on Saturday night, which will be awesome, I’m sure. And I will get to eat boatloads of wedding cake, always a plus. And it is literally just down the road from my house. So convenient!  I am really excited about it.  Other than that, my weekend will consist of lounging at a pool (location yet to be determined) and gorging on tomatillo dip. Sounds like an epic weekend in my book 🙂
