Game Day Recipes: Chorizo and Avocado Salsa

It's the best time of year to buy avocados! They're in season and this week, Hass Organic Avocados are 5/$5! Try this hearty departure from guacamole for a yummy game day snack. Use veggie chorizo or leave it out for a vegetarian version!

Chorizo and Avocado Salsa

Serves: 6. Prep time: 20 minutes.

Ingredients

6 ounces chorizo sausage, diced small
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1 tomato, diced 2 avocados, peeled and diced
1 cup corn kernels
1 tablespoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 lime, zest and juice
Salt to taste

Preparation

Sauté the chorizo in a skillet until lightly browned. Remove from skillet and set on a paper towel to drain and cool. In a mixing bowl, stir together the garlic, jalapeño, tomato, avocado, corn, chipotle peppers and lime zest and juice. Add the chorizo and salt to taste. Serving suggestion: For a party platter, cut 3 additional avocados in half and remove pits. Use a tablespoon to remove some of the avocado flesh and create a well. Slice a small piece from the bottom of the avocado so it will sit flat without rocking. Spoon the salsa into the individual avocado halves and serve with tortilla chips and spoons. Substitute crumbled bacon for the sausage if desired.

This versatile salsa is delicious in a breakfast burrito, as a burger topping or stuffed into taco shells, too!
