40+ years ago, when my father was in Viet Nam, we lived in his hometown for a year in southern California. There was a drive-in called the Jolly Kone that served taquitos with this runny, hot (heat, not spice) green sauce made with avocados. I've thought about that sauce ever since. I found a recipe a while back (can't remember where and forgot to write it down), but I tried it and it was what I remember...YUMMY!

  1. 1. In a blender or food processor combine the tomatillos, avocado, garlic, lime juice and jalapeno. Blend or process until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  2. 2. Heat olive oil in pan until hot and fry blended ingredients for 5 min stirring frequently. (Be very careful of the spatter, don't get burned) Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. 3. Serve hot with beef or chicken taquitos. Can be poured over the taquitos or used as a dipping sauce.
