Avocado Salsa

Please tell me I’m not alone in having a difficult time when spelling a-v-ooooooo-c-a-d-o….. I always want to use an ‘a’ where that first ‘o’ should be…. spell check won’t let me though… I guess that’s a good thing… makes me look smart at least…!

Today I bring you the goodness that is Avocado Salsa…!


See it’s not all crafts and design over here…sometimes we eat….! And sometimes I cook! Well, technically this isn’t cooking…but whatever…!

Still… It’s good and easy… just trust me…!

When we needed more variety in our menu, this salsa fit the bill. I admit I tweaked the original recipe that I found here…. (the name was a coincidence…! I just took it as a sign that I should try it..!)

Our version as it stands now consists of this:

...the goods
…the raw goods

1/2 can of black beans (rinsed and drained)

1 can diced tomatoes- garlic, basil & oregano flavored or plain (drained and coarsely chopped)

1/2 avocado (diced- you can use the whole if you feel so moved… this is just what my guys preferred)

1/4 cup chopped onion- (red or yellow- both rock!)

2-3 cloves garlic- minced

1/8 cup lemon juice

3 Tbsp dried cilantro

drizzle of olive oil

{these quantities combined make around 3 cups of salsa.. give or take}

Take your favorite salsa bowl (mine would be as big as a trough…because I could eat this stuff every.single.day…!)

Combine all the ingredients, mix together and ::poof:: you’re done! Grab your tortilla chips and get to munching!

...the finished product
…the finished product

….now that I’ve made myself hungry I’m off to see what’s left of this in the fridge…!

Thanks for reading!
