Tasty Tuesdays: Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde

.
Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
.
I found this recipe on Pinterest { via Sara Waters } earlier this Summer and wanted to make it right away! The original recipe is from A Spicy Perspective (a very cool blog, by the way). You won't believe how easy it is to make!
.
.
Ingredients:
- 2 ½ lbs. tomatillos, husked and rinsed
- 2 large onions
- 10 cloves garlic, peeled
- 4 jalapenos
- 2 Tb. vegetable oil
- 4 tsp. ground cumin
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup packed cilantro
- 3 avocados
- 1 lime (optional)
.
{ Look, the tomatillos match the dish towel! Ha, I did not plan that! }
.
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
.
.
2. Husk the tomatillos and rinse. Peel and chop the onions into quarters. Place the tomatillos, onions, garlic and jalapenos on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil. Place in oven and roast for 15 - 20 minutes. The outsides will be slightly blistered when they are done.
.
3. Meanwhile, half the avocados, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh.
.
4. When the vegetables are done, remove from oven. Cut the jalapenos in half and scrape out the seeds. Discard seeds and stem.
.
5. Place HALF of the tomatillos, onions, jalapenos and garlic in a food processor { or blender; I don't have a food processor, so that's what I used and it worked just fine }. Pulse until mostly smooth. Place in large bowl.
.
6. Add HALF of the cumin, salt, cilantro and avocado. Pulse until the avocado is pureed into the mixture. Add to bowl. Repeat for remaining ingredients.
.
.
7. If desired, add lime juice to the mixture and stir to combine.
.
8. Divide salsa among containers. This is supposed to freeze very well, so that's what I did with most of mine. It will be nice to enjoy this salsa through the winter.

This salsa looks amazing! Tomatillo & avacado are two of my favorites. I'll have to add this to my "Need to Try" collection.
