The first time I tried this salsa, I really thought it was pure avocado that has been blend with water, because when you hear the name avocado salsa, all you can think is that is made with lots of avocados, but once you taste it, you realise that it has lots of other different ingredients, but putting them all together, make this beautiful salsa so creamy and delicious.
Together with a red spicy salsa, this avocado spicy salsa is a must taqueria must have salsa, specially for al pastor tacos, it is so refreshing as well, that you can basically add it to any antojito (Mexican street food) you want.
All the ingredients on this salsa are raw and it is the avocado that makes it super creamy and special. Here at home in London, I only make it when I’m able to find fresh tomatillos, because these also add a special flavour to it, but if you can’t find fresh tomatillos, try to make it with tin ones, although the flavour would be different and don’t confuse it with guacamole, because it isn’t, this is spicier and utterly delicious.
