Green Salsa with Avocado
This creamy avocado green salsa is made with raw ingredients and is very common in central México where it is used for tacos “Al Pastor”, carnitas or other grilled meats. It is a very refreshing version of the cooked tomatillo salsa verde.
In these hot days of summer, it is an excellent companion for your barbecued steaks and an absolutely wonderful pair with pork carnitas. Other names for this salsa is “Guacamole Salsa”.
I first tried this Avocado salsa in the small town of Quiroga, in the State of Michoacan, famous for it pork carnitas, since it is considered the capital of the carnitas. We were living in the city of Toluca, Edo. de Mexico., and we loved to travel during the weekends to get to know all the different cities close by.
This small town is also popular for its crafts and souvenirs manufacturing. The town gets busy during the weekend when tourists arrive to taste the famous and delicious carnitas since there are several places close to the town square that sell carnitas and to buy the crafts made by the local artisans. Besides this Creamy avocado green salsa, the carnitas are served with several other types of salsas.
If you have any leftovers, keep refrigerated. It will last you up to 3 days in your refrigerator.
