Chorizo and Avocado Salsa
Spice up your party (or just an afternoon snack!) with chorizo sausage and avocado salsa.
- 6 ounces chorizo sausage, diced small
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
- 1 tomato, diced
- 2 avocadoes, peeled and diced
- 1 cup corn kernels
- 1 tablespoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 1 lime, zest and juice
- Salt to taste
- Sauté the diced chorizo in a skillet until lightly browned. Remove from the skillet and set on a paper towel to drain and cool.
- In a mixing bowl, stir together the garlic, jalapeño, tomato, avocado, corn, chipotle peppers and lime zest and juice. Add the chorizo and salt to taste.
This salsa is delicious in a breakfast burrito or taco. For a party platter, cut 3 avocados in half and remove the pits. Use a tablespoon to remove some of the avocado flesh and create a well. Slice a small piece from the bottom of the avocado so it will sit flat without rocking. Spoon the salsa into the individual avocado halves and serve with tortilla chips and spoons.
