Avocado Salsa


Why have plain old tomato salsa when you can add avocados to the mix? This Avocado Salsa is amazingly delicious and it’s easy to make! For this recipe you’ll chop up tomatoes, avocados, red onions, cilantro, jalapeños, and garlic and toss it all together with some fresh lime juice and oil and you’ve got a chip dip no one can resist! Minimal ingredients but you get tons of fresh flavor.

Avocado Salsa With Tomatoes and Onions

Avocado Salsa

This is basically guacamole meets salsa. It has the flavors of guacamole but more of a texture similar to a chunky salsa.

It’s perfect as a tortilla chip dip or you can add it to salmon or chicken or heavily layer it over your taco salad or add it to your taco lettuce wraps. It would also be in Tortilla Soup.


What I’m getting at is you need to try this stuff. It’s so flavorful, so creamy, so hearty and so versatile. A staple recipe for sure!


How to make salsa with guacamole

To give you an idea of how much I liked this, let’s just say it pretty much ruined my dinner plans today. I made chicken tacos but then before dinner I sat down to eat this, and I ate so much I wasn’t even hungry for dinner in the slightest.

Oh well, it was definitely worth it! I started out eating it with chips but it was just so good I ditched the chips and ate it by the spoonful. And I don’t feel guilty about it because just look at all the healthy ingredients in the recipe. Fresh, nutrient packed ingredients. You are going to love this!

Adding lemon and olive oil to bowl of avocado salsa

If you aren’t a fan of spicy you can definitely omit the jalapeños. And if you like it spicier you can leave in the seeds or even use hotter peppers like serrano or habanero. How much heat can you handle??

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci): I could absolutely live off of this salsa, love the avocado addition! July 8, 2014 at 7:05pm Reply

  • Phuong: I lived off of avocados, too, the last whole week. I had not tried avocados for salads until a couple of weeks ago (I had firmly believed avocado is fruit and should be good just by itself) and immediately fell in love. I must try this recipe. Just a little question: I guess avocado is heat producing since I tend to get pimples on my face if I eat too much of it. Does this happen to you, too? :’) July 8, 2014 at 6:42pm Reply
