Avocado Salsa Verde

Avocado Salsa Verde is a fresh salsa recipe with creamy avocado, tomatillos, serrano pepper, and fresh cilantro and lime juice. It’s so easy you can make a batch in about 10 minutes!

I love this green salsa with all the Mexican-inspired things: scoop it up with tortilla chips, spoon it over tacos, roll it up in burritos, or add it as a topping for enchiladas. Lots of options with this one, friends.

This recipe is a tomatillo salsa with an avocado upgrade. It’s fresh, fast, and delicious. 

It’s similar to a guacamole salsa but not as thick. Make it ahead – it keeps for several days in the fridge – and the flavors only get better.
