If using a blender, stir to distribute the ingredients evenly, then process the mixture until pureed (but still retaining a little texture). 3. Frying the sauce. Heat the lard or oil in a medium-large skillet over medium-high. When it is hot enough to make a drop of the puree really sizzle, add it all at once and stir constantly for about 5 minutes, as the puree sears and cooks into a thicker, more orangecolored sauce. Season with salt and remove from the fire. Authentic Mexican Twentieth-Anniversary Edition / 51 COOK’S NOTES Techniques Blender Tricks: Ingredients Tomatoes: I prefer to make the sauce with pear-shaped tomatoes to give it more consistency.
Add the chile, coriander and onion to the tomatillos (and stir, if using a blender). Blend or process to a coarse puree. 3. The avocado. Halve the avocado lengthwise by cutting from stem to flower ends around the pit. Twist the halves apart, then scoop out the pit and reserve it. Scrape the avocado pulp from the skin and place in a mixing bowl. 4. Finishing the sauce. Mash the avocado until smooth, using a fork or your hand. Scrape in the tomatillo puree and mix well. Season with salt, return the pit to the sauce and cover well.
Timing and Advance Preparation Allow 10 to 15 minutes to put the sauce together and a few minutes to let it season. It’s at its best for an hour or two, after which the crunch goes out and the onion grows in potency. TRADITIONAL VARIATIONS Xnipec: Prepare the sauce as directed, replacing the white onion with red, omitting the garlic (and coriander, if you wish), and replacing the vinegar and water with 2 or 3 tablespoons bitter orange juice, lime juice or vinegar. Generally, the texture of this mixture is coarser and the chile used is habanero (which, as far as I know, is not sold commercially in the United States).
