Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the beans. Tear the cheese into bite-sized pieces. Quarter the lime. Halve, pit and peel the avocado. Thinly slice the avocado and top with the juice of 1 lime wedge to prevent browning; season with salt and pepper. Trim off and discard the ends of the radishes; thinly slice the radishes. Peel and small dice the onion. Remove and discard the papery husks of the tomatillos; large dice the tomatillos. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

In a medium pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the onion and as much of the spice blend as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Transfer half the cooked aromatics to a small bowl. To the pot of remaining cooked aromatics, add the tomatillos and ¼ cup of water. Cook, occasionally smashing the tomatillos with a spoon, 11 to 13 minutes, or until thickened and saucy. Remove from heat and stir in the juice of 1 lime wedge; season with salt and pepper to taste.
