Guacamole Salsa: My Favorite Party Recipe
Two years ago, my brother made this amazing Guacamole Salsa dip and insisted I try just one bite. Before that, I had never eaten anything with Guacamole and I wasn’t a fan of “chunky” salsa. Just one bite was all it took though. Now, this is my all-time favorite salsa recipe! This time when I made it, I adapted it from the RedPack Chunky Guacamole recipe. Here’s how to make it:
- 3 avocados, pitted and peeled (the original recipe called for 2, but I like more)
- 2 tablespoons of lime juice (or the juice of one whole lime, if you have fresh)
- 1 14.5 ounce can of RedPack Petite Diced Tomatoes (the original recipe called for the variety with sweet onions, but I’m not an onion person)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Mash up the avocado until it’s the consistency you prefer. Then just mix in the other ingredients. That’s it! Serve either chilled or at room temp. I love eating it with the Hint of Lime chips.
