Favorite Green Salsas

Creamy Avocado Salsa

Found these over at Marci's On My Menu.  SO delish!

4-5 tomatillos
2 jalapenos, seeded for a milder taste
1 large or 2 small avocados
Cilantro leaves separated from sprigs (I used probably 1 cup of loosely packed leaves)
1/2 c milk
salt to taste (I also added a couple dashes of garlic salt and onion salt)


Cook tomatillos and jalapenos by boiling until soft.
Add avocado, cilantro, and milk.
Salt to desired taste.
Blend until smooth, adding more milk if you want to thin out consistency.

Melissa's Tomatillo Salsa


*Herdez Green Sauce (They sell this at Walmart here. If they don't have this brand in your area, you can probably substitute another green sauce....look for something with tomatillos and serrano peppers)
*1 or 2 avocadoes (peeled and pitted)
*1 bunch cilantro, washed very well
*8 oz sour cream
*1/3 white onion
*garlic powder and salt to taste

For spicier version: add one serrano pepper
For a more liquidy version: add another jar Herdez Green Sauce
For a creamier sauce: 16 oz sour cream

 Dump everything in the blender and mix well. I also add a dash of lime. It is SO good!
