I’ve been making this Avocado Cream Sauce for years now. I first posted it as part of my Pulled Pork Empanadas and since then I’ve been wanting to give the sauce it’s own special place on the blog.

It definitely deserves it’s own place.  Use this creamy avocado sauce for tacos, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas, elote (ok, anything Mexican) plus grilled chicken and meat. It also happens to make a seriously delicious dipping sauce for these Oven Baked Barbecue Chicken Wings or served alongside Spanish Red Rice

What is it

Avocado cream sauce is a smooth, creamy guacamole sauce crossed with a sour cream avocado dip that is all at once, creamy, tangy, nutty and fresh. Just a handful of fresh ingredients (avocado, sour cream, coriander / cilantro, garlic and lime) combined with seasoning.

How to make Avocado Cream Sauce

All ingredients are blitzed together in a food processor and it’s done. That’s it. It takes all of 3 minutes and you can make it as smooth as you like or leave a few small lumps for texture.

If you love avocado and you love a flavourful, nutty but also tangy dip then this insanely yum avocado crema is for you.

How to serve 

Serve this avocado creamy sauce;

  • on burgers
  • with tacos, quesadillas, empanadas or enchiladas (just serve up a big bowl on Mexican night)
  • with elote
  • over roast chicken
  • over grilled meats
  • mixed through salads
  • as a coleslaw dressing
  • as a sandwich spread
  • on toast
  • with crudites as a dip
  • with chicken wings

It’s wonderful for cooling down spicy foods too.

If you happen to have any special dietary requirements this dip is also gluten free and keto.

This may be the simplest recipe I’ve ever posted but I’m so glad I have. This incredibly delicious sauce is as perfect for a gathering as it is taco night and once you’ve made it, you’ll want to put it on top of everything.
