Grade A Guacamole

After trying many guac recipes, finally found the winner. Some of the ingredients are surprising, but it’s well worth it.

2  tomatillos
1/3  cup chopped onion
1/3  cup chopped plum tomato
3  tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
juice from 1 lime
3/4  teaspoon  salt
3  ripe peeled avocados, seeded and coarsely mashed
1.5  jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped
1  garlic clove, minced

  1. Peel papery husk from tomatillos. Wash, core, and finely chop.
  2. Combine tomatillos, onion, and remaining ingredients. Stir well.

If you want to go the extra mile and make your own chips, these go perfectly with the guac.

8  (6-inch) corn tortillas
Cooking spray
1/2  teaspoon  salt
1/2  teaspoon  Chipotle chile powder (such as McCormick)

  1. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges and arrange in a single layer on 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
  2. Sprinkle wedges with 1/2 teaspoon salt and chile powder.
  3. Lightly coat wedges with cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 375° for 12 minutes or until wedges are crisp and lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes.
