Guacamole Taquero (Tomatillo Guacamole)
Saved for later (97)

Total Time:

Makes: About 2 cups

Not all guacamoles have to be thick and chunky. This tart-tasting blended version is a mix of avocado, tomatillos, epazote (or you can use cilantro), chiles, garlic, onion, and lime juice. Try it as a topping for nachos, burritos, or tacos in addition to the standard tortilla chips.

What to buy: Look for an avocado that gives slightly when pressed but is not completely soft. We used a Hass avocado.

  1. 1Place all of the ingredients except the avocado in a blender and blend until very smooth, about 1 minute. Turn off the blender.
  2. 2Scoop the avocado flesh into the blender and blend until smooth. Taste and season with additional lime juice and salt as needed. Serve immediately or place a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. (The plastic wrap will keep the surface of the guacamole from turning brown.)
