Salsa & Guacamole for the Fiesta

No Mexican Fiesta is complete without Salsa, Guacamole and chips.    I really don’t care much for the salsa that comes in a bottle or jar, and prefer pico de gallo, so I make my own.   It tastes so much fresher and doesn’t contain all those preservatives and other junk they throw into the bottled kinds.

Tomato Salsa

  • 3 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • salt & pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and add salt to taste. 

Guacamole

  • 2 avocados peeled and seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup tomato salsa (above)
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • salt to taste

Remove the avocado from it’s skin by cutting it in half lengthwise and then scooping out the insides.  Discard the seed.   Place the scooped out insides into a bowl and smash it with the tines of a fork.  Add the salsa, lime juice and salt and stir.  I like it chunky, but if you prefer it smooth, then you can put it into a food processor. 

Serve with tortilla chips.
