Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of guacamole but sometimes I like to mix things up and make avocado sauce. It has a super smooth texture and is great for dipping tortilla chips or fresh vegetables!
Ingredients you will need
Avocados are rich in healthy fat and fiber and 2 are used for this recipe.
Sour Cream - ½ cup of low fat sour cream is used for this recipe. You could even substitute plain Greek yogurt if you like.
Cilantro - A staple in Mexican cuisine, ⅓ cup of fresh cilantro is going to add some amazing flavor!
Lime - Freshly squeezed is a must! Do not use bottled lime juice.
Garlic Powder - ¼ teaspoon is used for some added spice.
Be sure to pick ripe avocados
Fresh ingredients make this recipe amazing, so avoid those soft and mushy avocados! Look for ones that are firm but have a slight give to them. Also choose ones with the stem still attached. If the stem is missing, the avocado will likely have brown spots on the inside.
