Blend the avocados along with 1 1/4 cups of water until you get a smooth mixture. Once blended, add 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Blend for 1 minute to ensure the salt is mixed thoroughly.

If the lemons have seeds, use a strainer and measure 1/2 cup of lemon juice. Add the lemon juice to the avocado mixture. Blend for 1 minute at full speed.

The jalapeños have to be cooled down before they are added to the avocado mixture. Once they finish cooling, remove the stem and blend one jalapeño at a time and taste how spicy the sauce is. Continue to add a jalapeño until you have reached the desired spicy level.

Step 8: Adding Cilantro
