  • 3 to matillos husks removed & scrubbed
  • 2 shallots peeled
  • 3 cloves of garlic skin on
  • 1/2 jalapeno with seeds (whole if you want extra spicy)
  • 2 small avocados pitted & scooped
  • Juice of 2 limes more if desired
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • Pinch of cumin
  • Sea salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Place the tomatillos, shallot, garlic cloves (skin on), and jalapeno on the baking sheet.
  • Place into the oven and roast for 10 minutes, tossing to coat all sides of the veggies until a bit charred and softened.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Once the veggies are totally cool, place them all into a blender, making sure to remove the garlic skin first.
  • Add the avocados, cilantro, lime juice, pinch of cumin, and sea salt, to taste.
  • Blend until creamy and smooth.
  • Adjust seasonings and lime juice to suit your tastes, if needed.
  • Serve with chips. Enjoy.
