Because this green sauce was not exactly like the delicious green sauce from Wahoo's. It was exactly like the mildly-spicy green drizzle from Olvera Street—much to Sonia's delight. We happened to have some non-TJ's tacos on hand and we tried pouring the Avocado Salsa on them. It was amazing. We also enjoyed using this as a chip dip, but in the latter case, we missed the chunkiness of a normal guacamole or traditional salsa.
Make no mistake, this stuff is quite thin as salsas go—and even thinner as guacamole goes. It's almost like a lightly-spiced, pureed—or even...dare I say liquefied?—guacamole. No chunks of anything—just a smooth texture and a nice avocado flavor with a hint of a kick. As I mentioned, you could use it as a stand-alone salsa, but I think it truly shines when used as a drizzle for other Mexican foods or blended into other dishes. I could see this going great on chili or even as a dressing for a taco salad or southwest salad.
Sonia wishes it were a little bit thicker and a little bit spicier, but overall, she enjoyed it. Four stars from her. I absolutely agree.
Bottom line: 8 out of 10.
This looks pretty good im going to try it next time I hit tjs. Looks perfect drizzled on tacos. I love the food on olvera st too I'm from southern Cali and you can't beat the Mexican food there!ReplyDelete
Very true, Melissa!Delete
I need to get my hands on this one! Thank you for the great review as always. :)ReplyDelete
You're very welcome, Julia! Thanks for reading.Delete
sampled this in store slathered on a bun w a turkey burger. Yum! Good alternative condiment, but a tad bland for me on its own.ReplyDelete
I recently discovered this Avocado Salsa. This morning I baked a kale & spinach omelet, topped with TJ's Wisconsin Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, then a dollop of the Avocado Salsa. YUM!ReplyDelete
I used to buy the Albertson's guacamole which was good at $3.99, but they started packaging it in some square flimsy container with the lid attached that wouldn't shut after I got some out.
I like this stuff and the price is even better.
