An amazing combination of guacamole and tomatillo, this is a totally new way to enjoy your favorite corn chips.
Fresh tomatillos have a papery husk surrounding them. Peel it off and wash the fruit well to remove the sticky residue that covers their surface. Remove the core, chop in half and place on a baking sheet with the onions. Roasting the tomatillos and onions is going to mellow the harshness of the onions and concentrate the flavors of the tomatillos.
