    El Pollo Loco®
    Avocado Salsa
    by Todd Wilbur

    This creamy green sauce is available at the salsa bar at each of the 300 El Pollo Loco outlets located throughout the western U.S., and folks are going crazy over it. The problem is, you can only get it at the restaurants in small quantities -- time to put on our kitchen cloning hat. Use a food processor to mix this one up (everything but the cilantro and onion goes in there) and prepare for a delicious, spicy concoction that you can pour over your favorite homemade Mexican-style dishes, from tacos salads to fajitas. Pancho Ochoa opened his first roadside chicken stand in Guasave, Mexico in 1975, and now El Pollo Loco is the number one quick-service, flame-broiled chicken chain in America.

    1 ripe avocado
    1 jalapeno, stemmed and quartered
    1 cup water
    1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
    2 tablespoons diced onion

    1. Combine avocado, jalapeno, water, vinegar and salt in a food processor. Puree the mixture for several seconds on high speed, or until jalapeno is finely minced.

    2. Pour mixture into a medium bowl. Stir in cilantro and onion. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

    Makes 1 1/2 cups.

    Sounds good! Would you use as a dip and/or topping for taco, tostada??? or with chicken? All of the above? lol.
    Thank-you for posting, I love avocados.
