Avocado Green Salsa

Growing up in the Houston area, green salsa was a staple at every Mexican restaurant. There are many different versions, but this one reminds me of my home state the most.  It is bright, tangy, creamy and bursting with flavor! It is a must-have accompaniment to my Enchiladas Verdes!
