I’m lucky enough to be living with a avocado tree in the backyard, and my friends and I are always looking for fun ways to use this versatile fruit. This week we were getting together for a taco and game night. For just the six of us, we had 3 different guacamoles and 4 different salsas! Trying new sauces is my favorite part of a taco night because of how diverse they get. I’ve tried my hand at pico de gallos, red salsas, green salsas, and now I have my first avocado based taco sauce!

I don’t have a super great spice tolerance, so I really make this stuff for my husband and friends. thankfully I found that even with the peppers, there isn’t too much of a spice for me! Its a flavorful and creamy sauce with a bit of spice that hits you in the back of the mouth as you’re swallowing. So I think it deserves a “mild” or “light spice” label.

This sauce is designed to be more of a taco topping than a traditional dipping guacamole. If you have a squeeze jar available, this is a great application for it!

If you wanted to make this more of a traditional guacamole, leave the avocados out of the blender but puree all the other ingredients, and mash them into the avocados to create the right consistency.

Cuisine Mexican
Servings 10

Ingredients
  

  • 3 Avocados
  • 1 Tomato
  • 2 Jalapeno
  • 1 Habanero
  • 1/2 Lime
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup Water from the Boiled Ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Begin by boiling the whole peppers and tomato in water for 10 minutes. Save this boiled water to add to the blender and thin the mix out!
  • Remove the avocado flesh from the seed and skin and place in a blender along with the lime juice, garlic cloves, salt, pepper, and olive oil.
  • Add the boiled tomato, peppers, and 1/3 cup of the water they boiled in to the blender and blend until silky smooth.
  • Chill your taco sauce and enjoy your spicy guac taco sauce!

Tips and Tricks

  • If your mix isn’t turning out smooth enough, add some more of the boiled water of olive oil to thin it out.
  • Always be careful when blending something hot. Pressure can build up inside the closed blender and in some cases can even force the lid off mid-blend! For this recipe we are adding boiled ingredients to a bunch of room-temp ingredients, so it isn’t too much of a concern. If you want to be really safe, you can open the top of your blender and place a towel over it while it blends. This takes away the danger of pressure building up while making sure you don’t make a mess from blending with an open blender!
