Tomatillo Avocado Salsa - 4g Carbs, 1.7g Fiber

Makes: about 4 cups of salsa

1 lb tomatillos, husk removed (1 lb is about 4-5 tomatillos)
1 jalapeno, seeds removed (if you like it spicy, keep some of the seeds in there!)
1/2 bunch of cilantro (big handful!)
1 medium onion
2 garlic cloves
1 avocado, seed and skin removed
1 lime, juiced
1 tsp salt (reduced to 1/2 tsp for nutrition!!)

Put everything in a high powered blender and blend for a few minutes until pureed or to desired consistency. If you don't have a high powered blender, make sure to at least quarter the tomatillos, onion, avocado, jalapeno, etc before adding it to your blender. This will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
