I love Tomatillo Salsa Verde and there is also an Avocado Dip (not Guacamole) from a small local restaurant, here where I live, that I like very much. I decided to play around with the combinations of the two recipes and this I what I came up with.... "the best of both worlds" I prefer to use the Electric Pressure cooker Method and use chicken stock for the liquid. The chicken stock gives it a little richer flavor. Or if you use the boiling method...just add a teaspoon of Chicken Base (e: Better Than Bullion) to the blending process...
