Avocado Cilantro Lime Sauce




I am a Mexican food junkie. I love tacos, quesadillas, burritos, bowls, and enchiladas. So you know how you put lime, cilantro and avocado on most Mexican food? Why not just make a sauce using all of these ingredients? right? I thought I was being so cool whipping up this batch of sauce, but after I made it, I saw like 200 different recipes on Pinterest <– Check those out too! As it turns out, I use this sauce on everything, not just Mexican. It has the perfect balance of acid, with a creamy texture, along with the peppery cilantro. I love it!

  2. Interesting. I don’t really like avocados, but this sounds like it might change my mind!

  3. I do that all the time…thinking I am being so creative and then someone post a recipe for their blog basically of the same thing. These looks amazing though!! I have been living off of burritos with refied black beans and a little cheese because that’s all I can seem to keep down right now, so this would be great to add on top!! I love Mexican food!!
