How to make Avocado Salsa – “Salsa de Aguacate”

I have a love for avocados. I could eat them morning, day and night if I had them available. I love ’em on eggs, with tortillas and queso fresco, on a tostada with cotija cheese and my new favorite avocado recipe – as the main ingredient in my mom’s Salsa de Aguacate (Avocado Salsa).

There aren’t many of my mom’s recipes that I can duplicate and know that it’s going to come out just like she makes it. This one, however, is a #NoFail recipe. I love the simplicity of the recipe and how easily it can be duplicated, multiplied, divided, etc.

    I&#39;ve only ever tried avocados one way and wasn&#39;t a fan but i&#39;ve heard that depending on what you eat them with they can really change so i&#39;d like to try them in other ways.
