  • 1/2 pound tomatillos, husked and rinsed
  • 1/4 medium white onion
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled

  • 2 tablespoons Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Optional Garnish

  • 1/4 cup either chopped Roma tomato or pomegranate seeds


Place tomatillos, onion and garlic in a medium saucepan with water. Bring to a boil, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Let cool. Empty into a food processor or blender. Add TABASCO® Sauce, salt, lime juice, avocados and crema. Puree until smooth. Stir in cilantro. To add color, sprinkle with chopped tomato or pomegranate seeds.

    This is amazing! I used Chipotle Tabasco sauce because I like the smokey flavor. I doubled the amount of crema because I wanted it thicker. I also added the cilantro to the food processor with everything else. I used it on tacos and as a dip with tortilla chips. When I served it as a dip, I topped it with diced tomatoes and fresh cilantro.
