Ingredients

  • 2 big ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 green pepper, seeded and roughly chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • ¾ cup avocado oil
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leave, tightly packed

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor, process until very smooth. I recommend adding just one teaspoon of salt at the beginning and then adjust if necessary.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking adding more salt and/or lime juice. If the sauce is too thick for your taste you can add a couple of teaspoons of water to adjust consistency as needed.
  • Keeps up to 4 -5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator - it won’t spoil!

Notes

Oil: Please use a light-tasting oil to make this easy avocado sauce. Vegetable, corn, canola or avocado oil will work great, olive oil not so much because its taste overpowers the avocado taste.
 
If you don't have a food processor you can also make this avocado sauce in a blender.
