One of my favorite flat belly foods is avocado.
I have come to find so many creative ways to really dish it up and it is so versatile.
Since I believe that Guacamole is better than a traditional dip, I make it more often!
After all, it includes my avocados, lol!
Preferring my avocados a little more firm to bite, it’s quite the opposite when I make Guacamole Salsa because the softer the better!
In our home, weekends signify “Bring On The Party” as workweeks are long and weekends are short, life needs to be celebrated.
Actually, one of my staples for our dipping pleasures is Guacamole Salsa.
The combination of fresh ingredients, coupled with an Under 10 minute prep time, makes this a sensational party food.
As easy to prepare as it is delicious to taste by the spoonful–shhh, it’s sure to become one of your favorites too.
In fact, like mine, it may become the single most requested dip for tortilla chips!
To that end, I am about to share my most coveted recipe for Guacamole salsa so you can dish it up!
Try it out and see if you too love Guacamole Salsa.
Who knows, this and a Pear Margarita and you might soon you will be saying, “OLÉ!”
Maybe call this de-constructed Guac as it’s mashed and put back together!
A little respect towards the avocado, please.
Do you know how good avocados are for you?
Early on, I learned that avocados offer heart-healthy monosaturated fatty acids that your body does need and uses.
Also, avocados are loaded with fiber.
While that is just 2 of a plethora of healthful benefits, honestly, you just need to try the Guacamole Salsa and enjoy the taste.

It gets gobbled up before ANY of the other dips.
Don’t be afraid to purchase those softer avocados the make the best ‘moosh’ when you are preparing this and they are easiest to get that avocado pit out of!

2 Versions of ONE simple Recipe for Guacamole Salsa ~ It’s all preference
Really there are 2 versions of the recipe, I guess.
The more traditional version and the get me out of the kitchen version But let me look like a party pro!
Either way, you create Guacamole Salsa, it will turn out fine!
In fact, I think you will strike a balance between your favorite flavor and my 2 optional recipes.
It’s going to come down to prep time, so check out the recipe at the end and see how you want to make this!
If you are a person that has LATEX allergies, this is not a food you would want to create.
One of my sons has life-threatening food allergies and AVOCADO is a latex food that he does not consume.
Consider that when you create this.
That said, I do not have that allergy and I do consume it!
Also, it means that whether you are serving Guacamole, or sliced, chunked or any kind of Avocado, it’s a latex allergen food!
When it comes to tomatoes, I love using Roma Tomatoes,
However, I’ve used almost every and any kind.
Mind you, the taste has been all over the place.
My standard choice is Roma Tomatoes.
I feel that these hold their shape and taste best against an avocado and the garlic, lemon, etc.
As for the Garlic, big, firm cloves, are great.
You can add more or less as you work with the recipe.
Make sure your onions are fresh and not old, it can ruin the recipe!
Alternatively, sub in a red onion for a more intense taste and fold it in, don’t process it!
Tips for Guacamole Salsa
When the season is appropriate buy the red, white and blue chips it makes a great presentation for the Summer Holidays.
During the Fall and Winter holidays, you can always do a play on red and green.
Dress up Guacamole Salsa with a few sprigs of red bell pepper strips to give it a more festive bolster.
Also, around pumpkin time, use orange bell pepper strips!
Truly this is a multi-seasonal recipe for all the holidays, parties, and fiestas you will have!
When creating this recipe, I will offer a very helpful tip.
Not everything has to be made by hand.
I have traditionally purchased petite diced tomatoes with green chilies in them.
Purchasing them already diced is a time-saving factor.
Also, it relieves my fingers from the burn of those lovely little hot chili peppers.
Alternatively, you can dice your own jalapeno peppers or chili peppers, and fresh tomatoes.
