“Found on Epicurious. Seed about half of chiles for moderately spicy guacamole, all of them for mild. Guacamole may be made 8 hours ahead and chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature before serving.”

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Broil tomatillos in a flameproof shallow baking pan about 4 inches from heat until tops are charred, 7 to 10 minutes. Turn tomatillos over with tongs and broil until charred, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Combine onion, chiles, cilantro, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add tomatillos 2 at a time, mashing with a fork or pestle to form a coarse paste.
  4. Pit and peel avocados. Add avocados to mixture and continue mashing until incorporated but still chunky.
