Charred Tomatillo Guacamole

by Chef

Serves: 6


8 ounces tomatillos, husked

3 ripe Hass avocados, pitted

2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion

1 seeded and minced jalapeño

3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Preheat grill to medium high. Place the tomatillos on the grill and char all over by turning frequently, 5–7 minutes. Remove and let cool. In a food processor with a cutting blade, pulse the charred tomatillos to a fine grind. Scoop out the avocado flesh with a spoon and place in a mixing bowl. Add onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice, and mash with a wooden spoon. Mix in the pureed charred tomatillos and blend well. Taste, and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
