5 minute Spicy Avocado Sauce – made with avocado, cilantro, lime, a little evoo and TABASCO Green Pepper Sauce!
Although I am part of a compensated TABASCO Tastemakers program, this Spicy Avocado Sauce post is an extra that I am choosing to share just because it's yummy! I have not been compensated for this post.
The other day I promised you a green sauce and here it is! It's really an avocado sauce that takes just five minutes to make and also has just five ingredients. People, this stuff is so good that I can't stop eating it. I've been smearing it on just about everything for weeks!
Last week I put it on Roasted Chickpea Lettuce Wraps, then it went on a grilled filet mignon salad. A few days later I sliced a chicken breast, skewered it and tossed it on the grill. This avocado sauce was all I needed for dipping.
To make the avocado sauce, just toss one avocado, a big handful of cilantro, juice of half a lime and 1/4 cup each of TABASCO Green Pepper Sauce and extra-virgin olive oil into a high-powered blender (such as a Vitamix). Add a little more oil if you'd like it smoother (that makes it better for a salad dressing) or a little less TABASCO if you'd like to tame the spice. Then use it on everything you can think of!
You could throw in a jalapeño instead of the TABASCO if you prefer, but I think you'll love the tangy flavor the TABASCO brings. Or try another flavor and let me know how it turns out! I prefer the Green Pepper Sauce because of both flavor and the bright green color this avocado sauce has but I'll admit to being tempted to try some others. I'd love to hear what delicious things you slather it on, too!
