Craving Life Green Guacamole

My husband and I love home-made guacamole yet the recipe is a bit time-consuming especially if I am already making an elaborate dish. So I had a light bulb ūüí°moment to make a quickie green guacamole.

endiveGuacamole is a traditional Mexican dish made of mashed avocado, tomatoes, onions, and seasonings.  Recall my recipe for Salsa Verde Fish Fillet posted earlier in the blog? Salsa Verde is a salsa that uses tomatillos instead of tomatoes as it base ingredient. The tomatillo, native to Mexico, is a relative of the tomato being part of the nightshade family.  So naturally, Green Guacamole was born. 

I like to serve this with chicken quesadillas, tortilla chips, or Belgian endive (shown on the right).

Enjoy!
