Celebrating the almost-weekend with more Mexican flavors and one of my all-time favorite foods on the entire planet…


Tomatillo Avocado Salsa | Creme de la Crumb

I love making homemade salsa, usually the traditional redish tomato-onion-cilantro variety, but today we’re mixing things up with a bright green, creamy tomatillo and avocado salsa. To be perfectly honest, it looks a lot like guacamole doesn’t it? It totally does. That’s okay because it kind of tastes like a hybrid between guacamole and salsa anyway. So if you love guacamole (like my husband) and salsa (like me) then you’re in the right place. This salsamole is gonna rock your world.

And did I mention it takes less than 15 minutes to make? So easy. So delicious. So everything you want in a Mexican fiesta dip. And don’t stop with just tortilla chips, serve this stuff on ALL of your favorite Mexican dishes like tacos (I heart tacos), enchiladas (I heart those too), burritos (more heart-ing), tamale pie…. all of it.

I have never used tomatillo. This salsa does look just like gaucamole, such a vibrant green. I have to give it a try!

Your recipe is exactly what I am looking for. I love avocado and now I can try making a new delicious dish for my family. Thank you for your recipe 🙂

How long does this last for in the fridge??

    Hi jen! Mine lasted about 5 days before it was completely gobbled up 😉

this is such an unique recipe , a fresh change from the usual red salsa dip, thanks so much for sharing it.

This looks great – and so easy. Am pinning for later! Will have to check out your other flavours too – the photos look amazing!

Yummy yummy! It looks so healthy and tasty at the same time! I have some avocados in my fridge and thinking about what delicious thing I should do with it and now I got a wonderful answer. Btw, I think I prefer to have it with chips. Thank you so much for your great recipe!

Looks fresh and wonderfully tasty!
