Smokin Hot Italian Avocado Salsa
A spicy salsa that is made from diced Avocados from Mexico, tomatoes, green chilis, and sliced Kalamata olives. It gets its Italian zip from the Italian dressing and the smokey TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce. If you want it hotter just add more sauce or a chopped jalapeño or two.
