One of my favorite cuisines is Mexican. I think I eat more Mexican food than anyone I know. Chips and salsa are a must when I eat or serve Mexican food. I don't like store-bought salsas. So, here's a great salsa for those summer days to come, along with the tacos and bbqs you'll be having. I'm sure you and your guests will enjoy this one! I make it with habanero peppers. If you don't like spicy food or can't handle too much spice, you can substitute it with jalapeños or just skip the peppers completely. But if you love spicy food this salsa is for you! I use this on every Mexican dish I cook, year round. It's an amazing salsa full of flavor!


  • 1 lb. tomatillos (or more if you want it thinner)

  • 3 habanero peppers

  • ⅓ bunch cilantro

  • 1 thick slice of onion

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 1 avocado


  1. Peel and wash the tomatillos - they usually have a husk on them.

  2. Cut them into quarters and put in the blender.

  3. Follow with the habaneros, cilantro, onion, garlic, avocado & salt. Be sure to put the tomatillos in the bottom of the blender and not the avocado so it doesn't stick to the blade. You might have to help it start by shaking or using a mixer at first. But, once it gets going the juice from the tomatillos will help move the other ingredients around.

  4. Puree to desired consistency!
