 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      12 ounces Wh  tomatillos -- husked
    4                    Fresh serranos -- (4 to 6)
                         water
    1      large         avocado -- peeled and seeded
      3/4  cup           chopped fresh cilantro
    4                    green onion -- chopped
    2      cloves        garlic
                         salt -- to taste
    1      pinch         sugar -- optional
 
 Place the tomatillos and the serranos in a saucepan.  Pour in water to cover
 them.  Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.  Drain.
 When the chiles are cool enough to handle, discard the stems and seeds.
 Transfer the chiles and tomatillos to a blender.  Add about 2/3 of the avocado
 to the blender along with the cilantro, green onions, and garlic.  Puree until
 smooth.  Taste and add salt and, if you wish, sugar.  Blend briefly.
 Spoon the salsa into a decorative bowl.  Chop the remaining third of the
 avocado and stir it into the salsa.
