Chile Arbol Avocado Salsa Recipe at
Position rack on highest shelf below broiler and preheat broiler. Place tomatoes and tomatillos on foil-lined baking sheet. Broil until charred all over, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes.

Transfer tomato mixture to medium saucepan. Add all remaining ingredients except avocado. Bring to boil and cook over medium heat until onion is tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to blender. Puree until smooth. Strain salsa into bowl through fine mesh strainer, stirring with rubber spatula and pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Cool completely. Season salsa to taste with salt and pepper.

DO-AHEAD TIP: Salsa can be made ahead. Cover and refrigerate up to 5 day, or freeze up to 4 weeks.

Stir avocado into salsa and serve immediately.
