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.
First up are the ingredients: jalapeños, tomatillo, cilantro, salt, lemon (not pictured), water and avocado.
Chop up everything coarsely (except for the lemon), toss in the blender with a couple of tablespoons of water, season with lemon and salt and voila! You just made the easiest and tastiest avocado salsa.
Avocado Salsa Recipe
1/4 c. Cilantro
1/2 Avocado (pitted)
4 tbsp. water
Lemon and salt to taste
1. Coarsely chop tomatillo and jalapeños.
2. Add tomatillo, jalapeño, cilantro, water and avocado into blender.
4. Add lemon and salt to taste
This recipe is so easy I believe it should be a staple in everyone’s recipe book. You can whip it up right before you have guests coming over and it’ll keep in the fridge for at least a week.
