  • Knife


  • 1 Large Ripe Avocado
  • ½ Medium Jalapeño, seeds removed
  • ¼ Cup Cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Lime Juice

  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher Salt Less if using fine grain
  • 6-8 tablespoon Cold Water


  • Into your blender add avocado, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder and salt.
  • Add 6 tablespoon of water and blend. If you are using a large blender, you will have to scrape the bowl down a few times to make sure everything is blended.
  • If desired, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of water, to adjust to your preferred consistency and blend to combine.
  • Drizzle over your tacos and serve! Or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for no more than 2 days.


Depending on the size of your avocado you may need more or less water. 
I wanted to keep mine on the thicker side so 6 tablespoon was perfect for me.
