Whether you’re looking for a quick weeknight meal or something a bit more special for the weekend, avocado tomatillo tacos are a great choice. This simple yet delicious recipe takes just 15-20 minutes to prepare and can be served as part of a larger Mexican feast or enjoyed on its own.

In a small bowl, make the taco shell by combining flour, baking powder, salt and water until dough forms a ball with no dry spots in it. Cut into four-inch round discs then roll each disc out with your palms to flatten into thin circles around one-eighth inch thick. Place onto ungreased baking sheet pans lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown in color. Set aside when complete.

To assemble the tacos, place one shell onto each plate then top with some of the prepared avocado and tomatillo sauce mixture per taco. Sprinkle shredded cheese over tacos if desired then garnish each with fresh cilantro leaves. Serve immediately while warm! Enjoy!


When ready to serve, remove the warm tacos from the skillet and spread a layer of cotija cheese and a generous amount of the avacado tomatillo sauce on both sides. Garnish with pickled onions, cilantro, and jalapenos if desired. Serve warm with your favorite side dishes such as Mexican street corn salad or spicy roasted potatoes.

Tips & Tricks

These tacos are an exciting way to enjoy the delicious combination of avocados and tomatillos. Here are some tips and tricks to make sure your tacos are a success:

  • If you want to level up the flavor, roast your tomatillos before adding them to the filling. Roasting them will bring out their naturally sweet, tart taste.
  • If you can find it, opt for Cotija cheese as a topping for these tacos. It adds a salty flavor that complements other ingredients perfectly.
  • To save time prepping, look for pre-diced tomatoes or store-bought salsa Verde as an alternative to making your own salsa or guacamole.
  • Be sure to choose ripe avocados—you’ll know it’s ripe if it yields slightly when you press it gently with your fingers.
  • If you have extra filling left over after preparing the tacos, don’t discard it! Use any extra tomatillo mixture as a topping on nachos or in omelets and frittatas; alternatively, use the avocado mix and spread on toast with lemon juice and hot sauce as a delicious snack!


Although the classic combination of avocado and tomatillo has evolved over the years, you can make variations on this delicious taco recipe. To give the dish a kick, try swapping the tomatillos for diced tomatoes or jalapeños. You can also switch out the traditional tortillas for hard shells instead.

For a more wholesome flavor, swap out the sour cream for Greek yogurt and use fresh herbs like cilantro, oregano or parsley instead of dried spices such as cumin and chili powder. To add protein to your tacos, try adding shredded chicken or refried beans. And if you’re looking for an even healthier version, replace the tortillas with lettuce wraps!

Feeling adventurous? If you’re up for something different, try swapping out avocados for tofu and adding sun-dried tomatoes or pickled red onions to create a medley of flavors in each bite!


After assembling the tacos, serve them immediately and enjoy a delicious combination of avocados, tomatoes, and tomatillos. Make sure to save any extra ingredients for leftovers or as a topping for other recipes throughout the week. For an extra kick of flavor, add a tablespoon of hot sauce or your favorite salsa to the mixture before spooning it into the taco shells.

Whether you decide to eat the tacos alone or with a side dish such as chips and guacamole, these avocado tomatillo tacos are sure to be a hit! Thank you for trying this easy and flavorful recipe!
