Tomatillo Guacamole

A little earlier tonight, I wrote about how I can be tired, and how cooking sometimes isn’t always fun.  That is true. It is also true that I am very lucky, and I am sometimes overwhelmed with joy. Both can be true at once, I think.

Our tomatillos are ripening quickly these days.  Here is an easy dish that my husband and I made tonight (when I was in the midst of this tiredness).  We served it on top of TVP tacos, along with lettuces and homemade pico de gallo.

It will be best when you alter the seasonings to fit your tastes.  This will serve two hungry adults.

Tomatillo Guacamole

– 1 large avocado, peeled and stone removed

– 1 jalepeno chile, minced

– 3 tomatillos, husks removed and diced

– 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

– The juice of one lime

– A few dashes of ground cumin

– A few dashes of sea salt

Directions:  In a medium bowl, mash the avocado (in my mind, good guacamole has lots of lumps).  Add all remaining ingredients, and stir to combine.

Here it is on top of the tacos:

I am not sure how to end this post, except with gratitude.
