Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Serves 6-8 (about 3 cups)

6 medium tomatillos
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 Hass avocados
1/4 cup diced white onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 jalapeño chile pepper, split open and seeded
Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
1 tsp honey

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Remove the husks from the tomatillos. Rinse under warm water and wipe clean. Cover a baking sheet with foil. Cut the tomatillos in half and put them on the baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and roast for 20 minutes, until they are tender. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Cut each avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin and place the avocado flesh in the bowl of a food processor. Add the cooled tomatillos, onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, lime zest and juice, honey , salt and pepper to the bowl. Pulse for 1-2 minutes, until smooth and creamy. Adjust the salt and pepper if needed.

Serve immediately with your favorite tortilla chips.
