Ingredients for creamy tomatillo salsa verde
- Onion. White or yellow onion works best here.
- Cilantro. Use fresh cilantro with bright green leaves; choose a bunch that smells amazing. You can use the stems for this recipe, too; there are tons of flavor and magic in the stems.
- Avocado. Use ripe but firm avocados. The avocado is the fat in the salsa verde; it is what makes it creamy.
- Chile serrano. If you cannot find serrano peppers, you can use fresh chile de Arbol or jalapeño peppers without any problem.
- Tomatillos. Choose fresh tomatillos that still have their husk on. They must be firm, and if you peel them a little bit and the skin is sticky, it is better. When you get home, peel them and wash them thoroughly.
