I love fresh salsa! This salsa is loaded with flavor. I had a recipe written down for it at one time. Of course when I decided to make it a few weeks ago, I couldn’t find the recipe anywhere. So I had to come up with another one. I use mild green chilies because my family can not handle anything even remotely spicy. If you want to turn the heat up with this recipe, you can add jalapeno peppers or any other hot pepper that you want to burn your mouth with.
I also think this salsa would be amazing if served over grilled chicken or grilled pork chops. I am going to try that next time. This time, I just served it with tortilla chips.
After a day, the avocados get kinda mushy. It is really one of those recipes that is best to eat it the same day it is made. I’m doubt you will have any left over anyways. Because once you start eating this salsa, it is hard to stop!
Until next time,
