Tomatillo Guacamole

Guacamole enhanced with tomatillos is perfect. Since tomatillos are tart, they're great for balancing the richness of the avocado. Spoon this sauce over tacos, enchiladas, or scoop it up with chips. No matter how you eat it, you're going to love it.

The natural acidity of the tomatillos keeps the avocados' vibrant green color from turning brown.


Pulse avocados, tomatillos, spinach, cilantro, water, lime juice, jalapeño, and scallion in a food processor until slightly chunky; season with salt. (Guacamole may be made up to 2 days ahead — just stir well before serving.)
