Authentic Avocado Salsa Verde

Avocado Salsa Verde, Avocado Sauce, Avocado Taco Sauce
Avocado Salsa Verde

I grew up in Southern California, where street tacos were readily available.  This creamy avocado salsa verde is a wonderful change up from regular salsa. Its light, its flavorful, and has many uses.  We love it in tacos, burritos and eggs. This is an easy, fail-proof salsa that is sure to please.


Salsa Verde, Green Sauce
Herdez Salsa Verde
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 jalapeno, stemmed or roasted, chopped
3/4 cup Salsa Verde (I use Herdez)
1 tablespoon white vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons diced onion


Combine avocado, jalapeno, salsa verde, vinegar and salt in blender. Puree on high add water to find your favorite consistency.

Pour into medium bowl. Add cilantro and onion; stir to blend. Cover and chill.
