Fresh tomatillos, peppers and avocado can instantly take your guacamole from nine out of 10 to a 10 out of 10.

Enough reading about avocados, let’s put them to use! Kick things off by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Grab a baking sheet and line it with foil, then toss tomatillos, garlic, onion and your peppers onto the baking sheet. Roast the veggies for about 10 minutes, flip them and roast for another 10 minutes. Once they’re roasted to perfection, put all the roasted veggies into your food processor and pulse until the veggies are broken down into chunks.

Next, grab a bowl and mash together avocado, cilantro, lime juice and black pepper. Pour in the roasted vegetables and stir together until they’re one. Last but not least, slice up your veggie favorite veggie dipper and dig in! (Pro tip: Be sure to count for the extra veggie servings for dipping).
