I make this delicious creamy spicy avocado sauce by the buckets on weekends as part of my meal prep. It’s a perfect condiment to accompany any dish. Yet, it is quick and simple enough to whip up any day of the week, and it complements everything from eggs, tacos, fajitas, roast chicken, sweet potatoes, sausages, roasted vegetables to plain corn tortillas.
And, it only takes less than 5 min!
Some healing properties…
One of my favorite parts about this sauce is that not only it makes everything taste heavenly, but it also has some major healing properties. Below are some key health benefits of the ingredients in this sauce.
Avocados: Anti-inflammatory and loaded with antioxidants. Source of vitamin C, E, K, B6, folate, potassium and magnesium. High in good fats, fiber and incredibly nutritious. Can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Cilantro: Rids body of heavy metals, protects against oxidative stress, reduces anxiety and lowers blood sugars.
Garlic: Anti-viral and antibacterial properties to ward off sickness including common cold. Helps reduce high blood pressure and lowers cholesterol levels.
Lime: High in vitamin C and antioxidants. Boosts immunity and promotes healthy skin. It is also wonderful for digestion.
Serrano chili pepper: High in vitamin C. Immune system booster and lowers cholesterol.

The sauce might go darker over time as avocados oxidize a bit. Don’t worry, it’s still perfectly good to eat. So, enjoy it with eggs, grilled meats, vegetables, over salad, or buddha bowls!
