Need some munchers for a big crew? This Guacamole and Salsa for 10-20 Happy People will get the job done! If you put the Guac and these two Homemade Salsas in the middle of the table then your gathering is already a success. The fresh ingredients will do all the work, but you will get all the credit and that's okay too :) Here's how to make it...
Here's what you'll need: 13-15 tomatillos (approx. 1.5 lbs.) 3 jalapenos 1 onion 4 garlic cloves 15-20 sprigs cilantro 2 chipotles in adobo 3 limes 5 avocados 2-3 bags tortilla chips
As usual, you'll get a massive bump in flavor if you roast your tomatillos first. Start by removing the husks and giving them a good rinse. I usually de-stem them knowing that any juices leftover in the roasting pan will go in the blender as well. Give these 20 minutes in the oven at 400F.
As the tomatillos roast you can build the Guac and prep the other ingredients for the Salsas. For the Guac, start by finely chopping 1/4 onion and smooshing it with the back of the fork to release some juices.
Add the smooshed, minced onion to a mixing bowl along with: the flesh of 5 avocados the juice of 2 limes a heaping teaspoon of salt Mush 'em up and take a final taste for seasoning, adding more pinches of salt and lime if you think it needs it.
For the Salsa Verde, add the following ingredients to a blender and combine well: 8-10 roasted tomatillos (approx. 1 lb.) 1/2 small onion 1-2 jalapenos 15-20 sprigs cilantro 2 garlic cloves For a milder version start with just a single jalapeno (or even half).
For the Tomatillo Chipotle Salsa add the following ingredients to a blender and combine well: 4-5 roasted tomatillos 1-2 chipotles in adobo 2 garlic cloves I usually make this awesome Salsa super fiery, sometimes even using 3 chipotles! Of course, you can always make a milder version by using less chipotle.
And now it's time to serve it up! That was easy right? Plop everything in the middle of the table and surround it with 2-3 bags of tortilla chips. Give a shout to your crew and let them have at it!
Of course, double dipping in the Guac and Salsa is highly encouraged. Coat a dip of the fresh Guac with some of the fiery Tomatillo Chipotle Salsa and you are in for a real treat.
