Avocado and Chorizo Boats

This salsa is delicious in a breakfast burrito or taco. For a party platter, cut 3 avocadoes in half and remove the pits. Use a tablespoon to remove some of the avocado flesh and create a well. Slice a small piece from the bottom of the avocado so it will sit flat without rocking. Spoon the salsa into the individual avocado halves and serve with tortilla chips and spoons.
