This sauce is often served at taquerias. It is a thin sauce and served with burritos, tacos etc.The first time I had it I loaded my tacos with it thinking it was like Anerican style guacamole. It was so hot, I had to throw my tacos away and order more. Now I know to use caution with this. Leave the seeds in the jalapeno, or take them out depending on your desired level of heat. Since you never know how hot a jalapeno is until you take a bite, please start off with just a little jalapeno and add more to suit your taste.And if you are really brave you can add more than one!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the avocado, lime juice, salt, jalapeno, cilantro, water and olive oil in a food processor. Puree until smooth.
  2. Add the onion and pulse to roughly blend inches.
  3. Serve immediately.

This is a wonderful, spicy, addicting sauce! I served with some homemade taquitos. Excellent!!!

Outstanding, because it is smooth, meant to be used as a sauce or condiment, and because it is authentic to Mexico.

I am giving this five stars for flavor, for that is outstanding! however, next time I will use less water to make this sauce more thick to suit my tastes. I am so excited to have found this recipe as I had been searching for it since one of my coworkers made it for one of our potlucks! thanks for sharing, cookiedog!
