Avocado Salsa

I LOVE this salsa! My husband and I have been known to eat it for lunch, a bag of chips, a cool drink and we are happy. This would make an excellent Super Bowl treat this weekend. With the tomatoes, avocados, and chips on sale this week you may as well give it a try.

4 med/lrg avocados, diced
4-8 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 purple onion, diced
cilantro, chop as much as you like
chopped olives
can of sweet niblet corn
2 limes
garlic powder
season salt
red pepper flakes

Mix the first six ingredients together. Green Giant makes the corn that I use, it is a small can and I believe it is white corn. I don't always use the corn though. Squeeze the lime juice into the bowl. Add the garlic powder and season salt a bit at a time, stir together, give it a taste test, continue this process until it is perfect for your happy taste buds. The pepper flakes don't always make into the salsa either, just depends on who is enjoying it.

Truly, the amounts are subject to your personal taste buds. I will say that the purple onion gives it such a great bite and flavor. I made a batch of this last weekend, when my 21 yr old saw me cutting the onion he said 'yuck', when he took his first bite he said 'yummm'. I told him it was that purple onion that was making his taste buds happy.

It is not only a great chip and dip, but it is fabulous on your tacos, burritos, sandwiches, wherever you would like it! Enjoy!
