Spicy avocado salsa recipe

If you are looking for a quick and easy salsa to serve with Mexican food or as a dip, this spicy avocado salsa has a kick and is packed full of flavour.

Serving Size:

Serves 4 as a side salad and 8 as a salsa



  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1 large tomato, finely diced
  • 100g yellow capsicum, finely diced
  • 1-2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 fresh chilli, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander


Mix all ingredients together and keep in fridge.


  • If not serving within 30 minutes, add tomatoes in before serving to avoid the salsa getting watery (or de-seed before mixing together).
  • I’ve used yellow capsicum because I like the sweet flavour, but you can use any capsicum you like.
  • This salsa would be lovely served in lettuce cups with a bit of left-over chicken – yummy lunch.
  • Feel free to omit the chilli if you are serving to children.
  • I have used lemon juice in this recipe but it is also nice if you use lime juice in its place.
