"Green" Salsa

This recipe is from my sister (she has a food blog, too, if you're interested). My family makes this dip a lot since she found it. It's a green salsa that tends to get pretty spicy, but extremely yummy!!! A little technical with the tomatillos and chilies but SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth it!!!

Avocado-Tomatillo Salsa
1 pound tomatillos, husks removed
3 avocados
4-5 serrano chilies, roasted, peeled and seeded
4 garlic cloves, roasted and minced
2 tbs cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste

In a large pot two-thirds full of boiling water, add tomatillos, return to a boil and cook until tender, 3-4 minutes. Drain and cool to touch, 20 minutes. In a food processor, combine tomatillos, avocados, chilies, garlic and cilantro; process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
