For the tomatillo salsa
1 avocado, seed and skin removed
juice of 1 lime
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 cup white onion, diced
6 medium tomatillos, roasted
salt and pepper to taste

For the poutine
1 lb french fries
6 pieces bacon, cooked and chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped red onions

For the tomatillo salsa: Combine all the ingredients in the blender and blend for about 20 seconds until smooth. If the salsa is too thick, add a few tablespoons of water and blend. Adjust salt and pepper as needed and reserve.

For the poutine: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the fried or baked french fries on a oven proof platter. Scatter the cheese on top of the platter and place it into the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese melts. Remove the platter from the oven. Scatter the chopped bacon, red onions and salsa over the fries and serve immediately.
