Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 cups of avocado sauce


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • The juice of 2-4 small limes adjust to taste
  • 1 medium sized bunch of cilantro chopped
  • 2-3 jalapeños or Serrano peppers seeded and deveined (use green bell pepper for a non-spicy version)
  • 3-4 garlic cloves crushed - adjust to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil - or avocado oil for a neutral flavor
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin - optional adjust to taste
  • Salt to taste


  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender; it helps the blending process if the avocados are in small chunks and the cilantro is lightly chopped. I also recommend crushing the garlic before putting it in the blender to ensure no one gets a surprise large piece of garlic.
  • Blend until you have a smooth sauce. Use immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
