This creamy Avocado Sauce recipe (aka Mexican Green Sauce or Avocado Salsa) is tangy, spicy, creamy, and flavorful! Made with blended avocado, cilantro, jalapeno and lime, it is perfect for spooning over tacos, enchiladas, Buddha Bowls and rice dishes!


Units Scale
  • 1 medium avocado, ripe (1 cup, diced)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1/3 cup water- plus more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or leave this out and replace with water for an oil-free version)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 cups lime juice
  • 12 garlic cloves
  • cracked pepper to taste
  • 36 slices jalapeño (optional, to taste) or pinch cayenne


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until blended. For a looser consistency, add a little more water as needed.
  2. Taste, adjust salt, heat and lime.
  3. Store in the fridge for 2-3 days.


You can keep this OIL-FREE, replacing the olive oil with water.

You can make this in a blender, but may need to increase the water just a bit to get the blender motor going.

This is best served within 2 days.
