What’s avocado salsa?
It’s actually a combination of ingredients like onion, jalapeños, cilantro, avocado of course, among others.
This sauce have different names like avocado salsa, avocado sauce or guacamole salsa, we can call it however we want, the taste is the same but we can find some variations in some types of avocado sala, some people can add other ingredients or spices and some other add less ingredients.
The texture is creamy and the color is green, it’s perfect to accompany tortilla chips, tacos, even eat with food like chicken, pork or meat, we can prepare even salads with it.
We definitely recommend you to prepare this avocado salsa recipe so you can vary the meals and taste different and delicious combinations. The children will enjoy it too.
We can find a bottle of this avocado sauce in the store or supermarket, it’s true, but for sure, the flavor is not gonna be the same, I have bought it in the supermarket and for me, it didn’t taste the same as the one we made for a BBQ, when we prepared it, the flavor was more intense, more fresh, we did a lot for all the people and didn’t spend much money, we can personalize it, add or take off ingredients we don’t like.
And one of the best things is that we don’t have to feel guilty because we ate snacks or meals with it, because as you know, the avocado is a very healthy tropical fruit.
What we can find in the avocado sauce?
In this guacamole salsa recipe, we will find jalapeños and cilantro, if you want it a little spicy, thing that we recommend, but if you definitely don’t like spicy things, you can remove it. But if you let it be part of this salsa with avocado you will get a little amount of heat.
We need tomatillos, their appearance is like green tomatoes but have like a leafy covering, it will depend on the tomatillos if the avocado salsa will be thick or not, if you don’t want it very thick, we can add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water, but the avocado is what make it creamy.
It contains lime juice, cumin for a better flavor, onion, garlic, salt, among others. Here we will teach you how to make avocado salsa in the easiest way.
Can we add more or different vegetables?
For sure we can add more ingredients, we can personalize it however we want, we just give a base but it’s up to you how many things you want to add.
The grilled corn or tender corn can be an option to add, but of course you have to be careful with the texture when you decide to add, because maybe another ingredient can damage the texture of the flavor. But you can experiment.

Enjoy this guacamole salsa with your family and friend, if you need a greater amount, just duplicate the ingredients.
For me the lime juice is very important so I can get a citric touch to the sauce, but everyone has their likes. You can add a little bit of black pepper and olive oil if you prefer.
