So is it Avocado Salsa or Guacamole?

Avocado Salsa or Guacamole? It’s been quite the debate around here lately. To tell the truth, I’m not sure it makes all that much difference WHAT you call it, as long as you make enough to feed the ravening hordes kids and guests and still have enough left to snack on yourself! In other words, this delicious salsa/guac. will go fast!

I like to serve this Avocado Salsa alongside a bowl of regular salsa, either a Pico de Gallo or a tomatillo salsa. This makes a great appetizer, especially during the summer when you don’t want to heat up the stove or oven.

Edited to add: I’ve gotten so many comments today that express dismay that we don’t know the difference between guacamole and avocado salsa. I grew up in the Southwest. I DO know what guacamole is and I’m aware that this is exactly what guacamole is. I would like to point out, however, that the longer the discussion goes on, the more we get to eat! Sometimes there are benefits to exploring what we already know to be true. 😉
