Chunky Avocado Salsa

Not quite guacamole, not quite salsa, this condiment can top tacos or be scooped up with chips.

Salsa is the must-have taco pairing – unless you prefer guacamole, that is. But who says you can’t have both? Our Chunky Avocado Salsa brings both classics together, creating a new kind of salsa made with fresh tomatoes, creamy and ripe avocado, and the heat of a jalapeño to deliver a balanced salsa-guac combo.

This mashup between guacamole and salsa can be served as a taco topping. Try it on our Birria-Inspired Braised Lamb Tacos or our Spicy Chipotle Chicken Tacos for a cool, creamy counter to the taco fillings. But it’s also delicious as a dip that pairs perfectly with your favorite crunchy chips. But it can also double as a dressing or flavor-enriching topping for dishes beyond tacos, too. It’s a great match for grilled proteins from chicken to shrimp. And, of course, it’ll be a hit at cookouts, barbecues, and as part of your outdoor snacking spreads. No matter how you’re digging in to this guac-and-salsa in one, it’s a satisfying snack or meal addition.
