A quick and easy sauce that adds zing to any meal!

  • Total Time: 15
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x



2 ripe avocados (skin and seeds removed)

2 limes, juiced

6 tbsp green chiles (or 1/2 a jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped fine)

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup cilantro, chopped (leaves and stems)

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup olive oil





  • Years and years ago, a cooking class instructor told us to pull the cilantro leaves off and then chop them. I later learned that there is no need to discard the stems as they have lots of flavor, too. So now I wash and dry the cilantro, and then lay the bundle on a cutting board and chop away. I am thrilled to skip that tedious step!
  • If you like a spicier sauce, taste once mixed, and then add more chiles or jalapeños as needed.
