In my neck of the woods avocados have been on killer sales recently for as low as 3/$1. That’s a stock-upportunity for sure. I don’t know about the scientific evidence, but I consider avocados a superfood. Super-good! Love that smooth, buttery texture, especially when prepped with cilantro, jalapeno, and a little tomato. Yumbo!
FishPapa, however, is not crazy about guacamole. He’s got some texture issues. And I love it if we can both be happy at mealtime. It’s so much more fun that way. He loves avocado salsa. And this is so easy to make, well, it’s not even funny. My two year old could probably make this. Except for the sharp knife part of the equation.
This salsa goes great as a dip, a topping for Mexican dishes like enchiladas or tostadas, and just eating plain. Yes, I have done would do that.
3 avocados, halved, pitted, and chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 cup diced, red onion
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
juice of one lime or 1/2 lemon
Combine all ingredients gently. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chips.
