"Copycat" Avocado Salsa



I found this recipe on a "copycat"web site.It's like the creamy avocado salsa you can get at the "salsa bar" at El Pollo Loco.I've been making it for years now,it tastes just like the restaurant's salsa.It's not a hot salsa,just has a great flavor.Good on taco salads too.
