Fresh Chunky Salsa and Guacamole

If you are making anything Mexican such as tacos, burritos or fajitas from scratch you might as well go all out and make the salsa and guacamole from scratch too. Fresh salsa and guacamole is also good with plain nacho chips. Eat it as an appetizer or put it out at a party for everyone to snack on. The good thing is you can't really mess these recipes up. Play with the amount of lime juice and salt you like and find your perfect mixture.

We like these with our burrito recipe, nachos, or fajitas.

Chunky Salsa:

2 tomatoes
1 Tbs onion, diced
1 hot pepper, diced (optional)
1 tsp lime juice
few shakes of salt and pepper


Dice the tomatoes in medium to small squares. Mix with the onion, hot pepper, lime juice and seasoning. Add more lime juice or salt if needed.


1 avocado
1-2 Tbs onion, diced
1-2 Tbs tomato, diced
2 tsp lime juice
few shakes of salt

Scoop out the center of the avocado. Add tomatoes, onions, lime juice, and salt. Mash with a fork until smooth. Add more lime juice or salt as needed.

We always make these at the same time so we use one onion between the two dishes and steal some of the tomatoes from the salsa to add to guacamole.
