Being a true Southerner, my frequent contributor, Holly Clegg, knows the importance of football – and serving up great snacks like her Super Easy Corn & Avocado Salsa at football watching parties. Whether you’re watching football at a friend’s house or going to tailgate at the game, this healthy and delicious Super Easy Corn & Avocado Salsa and a bag of tortilla chips is the perfect party dish to share with friends.
I know my gang, who’ve already yelled at me for only having hummus in the house, would go through a chips and salsa recipe like Holly’s in no time. So you may want to make a double or triple batch. The only advance planning is to make sure you have some ripe avocados. If you arrive at the store and can’t find any – and it’s just a few hours until game time – ask for the produce manager. He may be able to find a few ripe avocados in the back.
This Super Easy Corn & Avocado Salsa recipe is from Holly’s cookbook, Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle at Any Age. Check out Holly’s other trim & TERRIFIC™ cookbooks on Amazon, too!

It’s football season! And what goes best with laid-back entertaining than a fresh array of salsas? Set up a salsa bar for an innovative way to highlight different salsas. Salsas have joined the race with ketchup as the most popular condiment, and their versatility and variety make them a perfect football watching recipe. Of course, commercially prepared salsas are available in an abundance of flavors, but take advantage of fresh ingredients and create these salsas sure to lure everyone to your fun salsa bar.
For the very best salsa with little effort, Super Easy Corn & Avocado Salsa, from Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle at Any Age is a must on your menu. With only four ingredients, this simple, but super salsa requires you to just open a few jars and add an avocado for a dip your guests will fall in love with.

This is the ultimate fresh + convenience = homemade recipe!
