Spicy Tomatillo Guacamole

Guacamole in Southern California can be found in thousands of places, so needless to say there are thousands upon thousands of variations that can turn up when thumbing thru recipes in a cookbook or online. This Spicy & Creamy Tomatillo Guacamole recipe incorporates the deep flavors of a few Tomatillos and the spice from 2 small peppers to bring about something different than your used too.
With today being National Guacamole Day (Sept. 16th) and with the Sun shining as bright as it is, I do believe that today is the perfect day to fire up the grill, make a few bowls of this good green Guac and get our complete lounge on outback. 
Yeah we know that Summer is supposed to be over, but in our neck of the woods it has still been in the hundreds this entire week, so we are going to take advantage as best as we can.
Enjoy this with some good salty chips and strong drinks, its sure to soothe the soul in this insane heat-wave.
