Equipment

  • food processor

Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup water
  • 1 pound fresh tomatillos
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes
  • 1 white onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 serrano chile peppers seeded if you like it less spicy
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 cup fresh avocado, diced optional
  • 1 cup cilantro optional
  • 1 bag tortilla chips optional

Instructions

  • Roughly chop the tomatoes, tomatillos, chiles, onion and garlic.
  • In a food processor, puree the water, garlic, chiles, half the onion, half the tomatillos, and half the tomatoes until smooth.
  • Add the remaining tomatillos, tomatoes, oil, and vinegar, and pulse the processor briefly until all of the ingredients are combined. Stop while the mixture is still chunky, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Chill the soup for at least two hours in the refrigerator. As it chills longer, the flavors will combine, and the soup will taste even better.
  • Remove from the fridge and place it individual bowls for serving. Garnish each bowl with avocado, cilantro and tortilla chips if desired.

Notes

  • This dish is BEST when it's made ahead of time to let the flavors blend.
  • You can make this recipe up to two days ahead of time but beware! The longer the soup sits, the hotter the chiles will become! If that happens, you can try a few things to remedy the heat - add a bit more salt and/or vinegar or try a pinch or two of sugar!
  • Although you can freeze Gazpacho, I don't recommend it since it loses the fresh flavor of the tomatoes.
  • If you have extra gazpacho, you can use it as a sauce with grilled chicken or fish or use it as you would salsa!
