Avocado Salsa

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
