Avocado Salsa

I had a few requests for the Avocado Salsa recipe pictured in my Smothered Chile Colorado Burrito picture, so here it is!

My grandparents live in California and are EXTREMELY lucky (in my opinion) because the have an avocado tree in their back yard.  I LOVE avocados… seriously, I could eat them for every meal and find a new use for them! How awesome would it be to have these just growing in your backyard to use at your convenience?! I would be in heaven!

This salsa is SO easy to whip up and tastes absolutely AMAZING! It is great with chips dipped in it or topped on your favorite Mexican dish.. or basically anything else you would want to put it on! It is my absolute favorite Mexican food topping and I just know you will love it too!

    avocado salsa? haha that’s super cute, but this is guacamole, no? unless you think guacamole is that avocado puree bs that grocery stores and taqueria’s try to pass off as guacamole. :) it’s yummy, this is how I make mine. i eat with a spoon forreal.

      I agree with you Maritza, does sound a bit like guacamole. However, I like my salsa/guacamole spicy. May add some jalapeno to this recipe to give it a lively kick. The tomato would suggest salsa, I would never add tomato to guacamole. Just not the mexican way! :)

      I think the difference is, with real guac, the avocados are mashed up w/ the other ingredients & there aren’t any tomatoes. This is definitely more of a salsa w/ the tomatoes & the chunky avocados! Whatever you call it, though, it’s good!!

    Just perfect! Not too much of any 1 thing, a perfect balance of flavors. Even my 2 year old ate some – and asked for more!

    I learned to make this from my mom a few years ago. I like to add black beans and eat it for dinner with chips. :-)

    This looks so good! Thinking of making it for a summer block party. How much does this yield? Should Idouble it or triple it in order to feed all the neighbors?

    Looks yummy! I live in California also ( San Diego) and we are blessed to have an avocado orchard in our backyard with about 20 trees. We’re always looking for new recipes to use up avocados. I will have to try this one for sure once they start producing.

    Looks great, but I really wouldn’t call this a Salsa since it has no HEAT. It’s more long the lines of a Avocado dip. I’ll make it but I’ll be adding 1 to 2 Serrano Chiles seeded and minced.

    Nikki, You go by “Chef-n-Training”? With all these wonderful recipes are you sure you are not a Head Chef at a big, fancy restaurant!!! You should own your own restaurant!! You are great! Keep posting recipes. Thanks, Krista

    I am going to make this tomorrow! It looks like there is corn in the picture. Is there? If so, fresh or frozen and how much? THANKS

  11. This was excellent! I did add in a few shakes of tobasco sauce, to give it a little spice and a little more garlic salt, but it was a huge hit!!!
