    Some avocado might be nice.

    Now that was funny! :laugh:
    And BTW ... I do agree.
    Sounds like a great salsa to me!

    Probably too late...but I add a bit of chili powder as well...and I omit the garlic. I find the garlic overpowers.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    Two problem. Garlic in. Now for the chili powder. I don't have any. My wife cooked dinner tonight, she needed chili powder. I told her to use something I thought was close ground cayenne red pepper. Well dinner was ready. She tasted it and about threw up. I tried it and flames were shooting out of my mouth. We can't talk about chili powder.

    LOL!!! BTW...don't ever try to substitute cayenne pepper for chili powder!! :laugh: Guess you know that now.... :woohoo:
    Hope dinner wasn't completely ruined. :sick:

    Try paprika, a little cayenne, ground cumin and ancho powder as a substitute for chili powder.

    I'd leave the garlic & lime juice out. ;)
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    Dinner was in the trash after the first taste
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    Next time I will just go to the store and buy chili powder
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    I will try that next time. It as good they way I did it tonight. I have made it that way a few times. Just looking for ways to change it up.

    I'm with Beli on the Garlic...but I always use a couple tablespoons of FRESH orange juice and get rave reviews. Of course, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper are musts!

  • A shot of Tabasco instead of chili powder or cayenne. For 3 avocados, two forks full of original Rotel instead of tomatoes.
