Avocado Spicy Salsa Recipe


  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and minced (adjust based on heat preference)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt to taste
  • A pinch of cumin (optional)
  • A dash of hot sauce or red pepper flakes (for extra spice, optional)


  1. Combine Fresh Ingredients: In a medium mixing bowl, gently toss together the diced avocados, cherry tomatoes, red onion, jalapeños, and cilantro. The key is to mix gently to maintain the chunky texture of the avocado.
  2. Add Flavor: Squeeze the lime juice directly over the mixture. Add the minced garlic and season with salt. If using, sprinkle in the cumin and add a dash of hot sauce or red pepper flakes for an additional spice kick.
  3. Mix and Chill: Stir the mixture gently until well combined. Cover and let the salsa chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  4. Serve: Serve your avocado spicy salsa chilled, garnished with a few leaves of cilantro or a lime wedge on the side. Enjoy with tortilla chips, over grilled fish, or as a topping for your favorite Mexican dishes.

Tips for Perfect Avocado Spicy Salsa:

  • Ripe Avocados: Choose avocados that are ripe yet firm to ensure they don’t become mushy when mixed.
  • Heat Level: Adjust the quantity of jalapeños and the addition of hot sauce or red pepper flakes according to your heat tolerance. Remember, it’s easier to add more heat than to take it away.
  • Lime Juice: Lime not only adds zest but also helps prevent the avocados from browning too quickly. Ensure every piece is well-coated.
  • Serving Suggestion: For a decorative touch, serve the salsa in a hollowed-out avocado shell or alongside a colorful array of vegetables and chips for dipping.

This Avocado Spicy Salsa recipe is a testament to the versatility of avocados and the dynamic flavors of Mexican cuisine. Each bite is a delicious balance of creamy, spicy, and tangy, making it a hit for any occasion.
