With just a handful of fresh ingredients like tomatillos, serrano chiles, onion, cilantro, garlic, and avocados, you won’t believe how easy it is to make traditional Mexican salsa at home.



  • 1 medium Tomatillos, raw
  • 1 cup Water, tap, well
  • 34 g Serrano Peppers, Chiles Serranos
  • 3/4 cup Onion, Diced White
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup avocado


1 Bring tomatillos to a boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Cover and reduce heat to low.
2 Let simmer for 5-to-7 minutes just until the tomatillos are cooked through. Remove from heat; let cool completely.
3 Remove cooked tomatillos with a slotted spoon. Puree the cooled tomatillos with the serrano chiles, onion, garlic, cilantro, and avocado until smooth.
4 Pour in ¼ cup of the water the tomatillos were cooked in if the sauce is too thick.
5 Pour salsa into a bowl; season with coarse salt to taste.
