Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Materials
You will need the following:
Three small avocados
2 cups of fresh cilantro
1/2 cup of lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1 1/4 cups of water
3-5 jalapenos (depends on how spicy you would like your sauce to be)
Step 2: Wash Your Ingredients
Always make sure you rinse your ingredients, even if they have a peel.
Step 3: Boil Jalapeños
Cook fresh jalapeños by boiling them in a small saucepan. The quantity depends on how spicy you would like your sauce to be. Boil them until they are completely cooked (7-8 minutes).
Step 4: Cutting Avocados
Cut avocados in half. Remove the pits with a spoon and set aside. Scoop out the avocado using a spoon and place in a blender.
Step 5: Blend the Avocados
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.
Step 6: Adding Lemon Juice
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.
Step 7: Add Jalapeños to the Mixture
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
Add 2 cups of fresh cilantro. Select the pulse mode on the blender. Continue to press start until the cilantro is finely chopped, but NOT BLENDED.
Step 9: Using the Avocado Pits
Pour the sauce into a container and drop the avocado pits into the sauce. The pits will help the sauce stay fresh.
Step 10: Serve an Enjoy
Serve this simple and delicious sauce with your favorite chips and enjoy.
