Creamy Avocado Salsa Verde

As the weather finally begins to warm up, I have salsa on the brain. For me salsa not only makes the perfect snack but also is one of my favorite things to pair with simple grilled meats like chicken, pork, beef, and fish. It’s a quick and low calorie way to elevate any grilled (or baked) dish and with a food processor can come together in under five minutes. This particular creamy avocado salsa verde is a great combination of a classic guacamole with a classic green salsa verde that can be as spicy as you like.

Curious about the chips? For a lower carb option, I sliced a low carb Flat Out wrap into strips, seasoned them with salt and pepper, squeezed on some lime juice, and then baked them directly on the oven rack at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Crispy, crunchy, and yummy.
