Spicy Cilantro Lime Avocado Sauce!

What goes better with avocado than lime and cilantro? Nothing? Correct. This avocado cilantro sauce is filled with so many different flavors and spices that just work so well together. I made this sauce originally as a dressing for a taco salad recipe (coming soon), but over time I’ve realized how many different things this tastes amazing with.

I use it as a dressing, a spread on toast, sauce for main dishes, a dip for veggies…or French fries. Really it’s become a bit of an obsession. But don’t judge until you’ve tried it on everything! And this is another ridiculously easy recipe to make!

I put it on everything. Below is a photo of it with turkey tenderloin made with my fajita seasoning!

You can also customize this for your taste buds or dietary restrictions. If you are vegan try it without yogurt or coconut yogurt. Or if you don’t love too much spicy, lower your amount of adobo sauce. It is pretty spicy and can be reduced. If you want to reduce it pretty low, you could use it as a cooling sauce for spicy tacos or nachos.

Ingredients:

  • avocados
  • Greek yogurt
  • adobo sauce (sauce from can of chipotle peppers)
  • limes (juiced)
  • cumin
  • paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  • fresh cilantro leaves (remove from stem)

How to Make Spicy Cilantro Lime Avocado Sauce:

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor (or your blender).
  2. Blend all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides if ingredients are sticking. Pour into a bowl and keep refrigerated until use.
  3. Enjoy!
