  • ½ Medium Jalapeño, seeds removed
  • ¼ Cup Cilantro

    1 Large Ripe Avocado, ½ Medium Jalapeño, seeds removed, ¼ Cup Cilantro, 1 tablespoon Lime Juice, ¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder, ¼ teaspoon Kosher 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.
    6-8 tablespoon Cold Water
  • 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.  
If you use a large blender like I did, you will need to scrape the sides down a few times until It gets moving. I recommend using a smaller, magic bullet-style blender, if you have one!
