Spicy Avocado Chimichurri Salsa Recipe

0 Comments

I used to be all about red-based salsas. It’s the comfort food us Coloradans have all grown up with in Mexican restaurants throughout the state.

The red restaurant salsas are always flavorful and have just the right touch of heat, but after a while, you feel like you’ve tasted them all.

There’s no wow factor that makes you sit up a little straighter and say “holy cow, now that’s some good freakin’ salsa!”

This was the main reason I converted to guacamole instead of salsa.

Why feel the need to indulge in the same salsa over and over again, when I could seek comfort in a giant bowl of tasty guacamole?

That is, until now.

My friends, I have found the ultimate salsa to get you out of your restaurant-style salsa rut. Spicy avocado chimichurri salsa is the happy marriage of a fiery salsa and a chunky guacamole.

It’s got the heat and fresh flavors of a typical salsa, wrapped up with big chunks of avocado that give you a smooth, creamy finish to every bite. Making it the perfect love child of salsa and guacamole.  

I must warn you, you might not be able to go back to just one after trying this! 

Not only does this salsa pair well with a classic chip and dip combo, it goes well with chicken, steak and even salmon.

It’s so versatile and it brings so much flavor to a plain ol’ grilled chicken breast.

You’re only 5 minutes away from this bowl of sunshine and happiness…
