Would you consider yourself a guacamole or salsa lover when it comes to Mexican food? Frankly, I like them both and I must say that I really love today’s creative recipe by Chef-In-Training for Avocado Salsa. It’s the best of both worlds!
I am serious when I say I have a weakness for chips and salsa. My family will tell you that I can do some pretty serious damage with the Endless Chips and Salsa at Chili’s — I love those thin and crispy chips! So, it’s no wonder that I also love making dips and salsas at home, especially when tomatoes are in season.
Ingredients for Avocado Salsa
- Avocados — the start ingredient! Choose avocados that are ripe, but not overly soft for the best results.
- Red onion — a little goes a long way. If your onions seem too strong, put the diced onions in a colander and pour boiling water over, letting the water drain immediately. This will help take the “bite” out of the onions.
- Roma tomatoes — the redder the tomatoes, the better the taste
- Lime — I always use fresh lime juice, but you can also use bottled lime juice.
- Cilantro — a very popular herb in Mexican recipes (optional)
- Garlic salt — or substitute two cloves of minced garlic and sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
