I found the recipe for Guacamole Salsa through Pinterest a long time ago. And I don’t know why I waited so long to make it. Maybe it’s because regular guac is so phenomenal? Idk. But what I do know is that this salsa is pretty much the best thing that has ever happened to me. Well, maybe that’s a wee bit of an exaggeration–knowing Jesus and meeting/loving/marrying Ben rank a little higher up there… but this is a close third. It’s just. so. good!!!
It’s like guacamole meets salsa [duh] made with tart, bright tomatillos, avocado, and cilantro, as well as a bunch of other fresh veggies. It has the consistency of salsa with the creaminess of guacamole–the best of both worlds… am I right? It’s fresh, garlicky, and a bit spicy… but you can tone it up/down with the jalapeno as desired–so don’t shy away if spice isn’t your thing.
Basically… this salsa is the best thing ever. Once you make a batch, you’ll always keep a jar in the fridge. You’ll be pouring it on absolutely everything, from wraps to burrito bowls to eggs to salads… that is, if you don’t eat it all with a spoon!
And be sure to come back on Wednesday for the enchiladas I made with this salsa. OH my goodness, if those aren’t reason enough to make some of this salsa, I don’t know what is! Enjoy your day! 🙂
