Step

In a mortar or a food processor, pound or pulse the garlic with 1 teaspoon of salt until a paste forms. Add the tomatillos, onion, chiles and cilantro and pound or pulse until a slightly chunky puree forms. Add the avocado and pound or pulse until smooth. Season the salsa with salt and serve right away.
