  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 green onions roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup Hatch green chile*
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 small ripe avocado cubed


  1. Place all ingredients, except the avocado, in a food processor and blend for 15 to 30 seconds.

  2. Put salsa in a bowl and add a cubed avocado.

  3. Enjoy immediately. This will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days, but make sure you lightly stir the avocado into the salsa, to keep the avocado from browning.

Recipe Notes

*If you don't easily have access to Hatch green chile, you can substitute this with one to two jalapenos. The amount you use really depends on your desired level of heat. So start with a little, and gradually work your way up to your desired heat level.
