Taqueria Style Creamy Avocado Salsa

Taqueria Style Creamy Avocado Salsa is this simple man`s plan to healthier eating today. I have a confession, I`m a salsa addict. Especially Mexican salsa`s. There`s such an awesome wide range from mild to mind blowingly spicy, fresh, roasted, chunky, smooth, they really cover the spectrum & are so good on much more than just tacos or chips. (Although I kinda have a taco obsession as well) Add to grilled or roasted meats or fish, with eggs any style, top a burger, add to a sandwich for a flavor boost or well, with a spoon straight from the bowl and it`s an extra serving of vegetables. This particular recipe is a perfect combination of guacamole & tangy tomatillo salsa verde. Make it mild or hot depending on your spice tolerance, either way you`ll be glad you did.

  1. I made a creamy avocado salsa, I roast my chilies and tomatillos, on a hot plate, it they are soft,
    we like it hot, and cilantro, and secret ingredients, and blend creamy, and use on even sandwiches. and on potatoes, eggs, carnitas, etc.
    My self and husband have been making salsa for most of my life, we have entered in different
    salsa contest, And have won 14 first awards, We love salsa,,,Thanks, Delia,(stinkylittlefeet @msn.com

    • Thanks so much Delia! Salsa`s are just the bomb! Such great accompaniments to just about anything. You`ll usually find at least 2 if not 4 or 5 in my fridge at all times.
