6 plum tomatoes finely diced and seeded (very important)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely snipped cilantro
At least 1 1/2 tablespoon lime juice (she always uses more and squeezes it fresh)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2-4 firm, ripe avocados
Basically, all of these ingredients (except the avocados) make salsa.
Mix the salsa an hour before using the avocados.
Peel and mash or dice the avocados and add more seasonings to taste. Add 1/4 cup of salsa for every 2 avocados.
Note from Mitzi: “I really have loosely followed this recipe, but you can’t mess it up. It’s always very good because you make everything fresh.”
