Avocado salsa (salsa de aguacate)

The avocado salsa is a delicious green salsa with a touch of spiciness, perfect for many mexican dishes, from tacos to carne asada. To make this salsa more creamy, you can add one more avocado to this recipe. Please note this salsa is not at all considered a variant of the guacamole, those two salsas are completely different things...
