  • molcajete nice to use one if you have it! But optional of course 😊


  • 1 large avocado use Hass if you can; sub 2 small/mini avocados for one large
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1-2 tomatillos sliced or cut up into small pieces
  • 1 serrano pepper cut into small pieces
  • ½ lime juice from ½ of a lime
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro torn into small pieces or chopped; can stir it all in or reserve some for garnish
  • ¼ cup onion minced
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 ts olive oil


  • Preheat your oven to 400F. Add sliced/cut up tomatillos and serrano to an ovenproof baking pan. Drizzle the olive oil and add a pinch of both salt and pepper. Roast in your oven for around 15 minutes or until the tomatillos and serrano have softened. Remove from your oven and allow to cool (should take around 10 minutes).

  • Now add the roasted tomatillo and serrano to a bowl, or molcajete if you have one! (A molcajete is the Mexican version of a mortar.) Then add the avocado(s), and mash away!
