Hailing from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I have tasted my share of salsas and spicy dips, etc. I LOVE guacamole. Although I am a self proclaimed "spice wimp"
this recipe appealed to me, so I had to give it a try. It was so good, I wanted to write a short blog and wave it's flag a little. The creator of this recipe is Valerie, of From Valerie's Kitchen (http://www.fromvalerieskitchen.com/)
fame. Some of you may subscribe to her blog already, but if not I would highly recommend you hop over for a visit. She has lots of fabulous recipes.>>
My family loves shrimp tacos, served on flour tortillas (I don't make them homemade, but I probably should, homemade tortillas are not super hard, and are a thousand
times more delicious, but I'm too lazy to include this step). I thought shrimp tacos would be the perfect opportunity to try this recipe. Boy was I right. With a few adjustments to ingredient proportions, we had a yummy salsa that was not to spicy for our
family. It's kind of ironic, actually, reading the reviews of this recipe, some say it's to spicy, some not enough, but adjusting the ratios of the ingredients, or for those who like it spicier, adding something simple, like a jalepeño or some chipotle fixes
it up just fine.
Since I added so much extra avocado and greek yogurt, we had plenty left over. Bring on the chips, veggies, or anything else we can find to dip in it. I also
might take a couple of small containers to friends and family - those who are REALLY good to me! I just won't mention how easy it was to make, and I'll have a couple favors coming my way!
Just one additional note: I love that Valerie included Greek yogurt in this recipe instead of sour cream. Sour cream is equally as yummy, and a fine substitute
if that's what you have in the fridge, but I have recently fallen in love with Greek yogurt. It's just a yummy as sour cream, packed with protein, and has less fat than sour cream. If you haven't tried it already, I strongly suggest giving it a try in your
next sour cream recipe (or just try the Creamy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa for that matter!)
Until Next time. . .
