Avocado Southwestern Salsa

Yum! This was awesome, but be warned it makes a lot! Like a lot a lot, and it doesn’t keep well the next day at all. I added about 1/3 cup of fresh cilantro to the mix, and disregarded the honey that the original recipe calls for. Fortunately I had some flour tortillas on hand so that it changed from just being a salsa to a veggie taco mix for people to eat. Another friend at the get together I made this for had brought hummus and pita pockets, this salsa went good with pita pockets as well.
