Charred Tomato and Avocado Salsa- (low-fat & vegan)

I know NOTHING about sports! I am NOT even embarrassed to admit this:  I DON’T know who is playing in the Super Bowl! I can find out with a quick Google search, but I’m not into sports.   I am however into  super bowl parties… I love to hang out with my friends and let’s face it- the food is yummy! Chips, dips, chili (last year my bestie Lila made the best chili—I promise to post that recipe soon).  So as I watch all these super bowl commercials and promos I find myself salivating for all these foods in a major way. This recipe for Charred Tomato and Avocado Salsa is the perfect combo of pico de gallo and guacamole. It’s super easy and will stay fresh for hours (if it lasts that long at your party). So whip up a quick batch or two and eat with chips, spoon over a burger or better yet, pile it on some yummy chill! Enjoy!
