Creamy Avocado Sauce
Creamy Avocado Sauce is super flavorful and easily made in your blender. It's the perfect avocado sauce for tacos and delicious on chicken, fish, scrambled eggs, or as a dip.
Want a recipe for the most kick-ass, insanely delicious guacamole sauce? I had a feeling you did!
This is a recipe I've been making for years that I originally called Ají Guacamole. (Ají meaning a spicy sauce.)
I've now given it the super fancy name Creamy Avocado Sauce. What we should really call it is The Best Sauce for Tacos and Absolutely Everything Else You Eat. It's a bit of a mouthful to say, but it really is the best and you'll want to eat it on absolutely everything.

What is avocado sauce?
It's the best thing ever! #nojoke
This avocado sauce recipe is like a dip, a sauce, and a bowl of guacamole got together and magic happened. It's a little like all of those things and somehow better than each on their own.
It's smooth and creamy and bursting with fresh flavors and as spicy as you want to make it.
How do you make avocado sauce for tacos?
It's the easiest thing ever! #alsonojoke
- Pull out your blender or food processor. The avocado sauce in the pictures was made in my Vitamix, but a regular blender works just as well.
- Put the ingredients into your blender and turn it on.
That's it! You've just made yourself the best guacamole sauce recipe ever.
How to serve this guacamole sauce?
I'm glad you asked! First, you'll want to eat a spoonful. Joking/not joking.
While it's ideal for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and all of your fav Mexican food, it's good for so much more. We've eaten it on:
- Scrambled and fried eggs
- Baked fish
- Roast chicken
- As a salad dressing
- Tossed with cabbage for coleslaw
- As a dip with veggies
- Drizzled over pork carnitas
- Spread inside sandwiches and wraps
- By the spoonful. (Just in case you missed that part.)
And do you remember when I made those Baja Fish Tacos? They were smothered in this creamy avocado sauce.

I’m going to make some fish soft tacos and I saw your quacamole sauce and I will try replicating your sauce, cross your fingers it turns out well. I will give you feedback later on this week. Thanks for sharing
Made this up and substituted low sodium chicken broth for the water. Poured it over freshly smoked chicken/bacon …. BODACIOUS!
great recipe. i tweaked the proportions a little, added more garlic and lime and a couple sprigs of fresh mint as well. turned it all into cauliflower wings. holy yum.
I would love to make this into a sauce for some lamb tamales. How would you recommend thinning it? I’d hate to change the flavor profile.
I would simply add a little water. You shouldn’t have to add much to thin it. 🙂
This is so fresh and delicious!!! I’ve topped tacos, hash browns, pizza (vegan buffalo chicken), baked potatoes and Used it as a sauce with zucchini noodles…yum!!!
I’m so happy to hear that you are loving this recipe!
Easy and super yummy! A go to every time!! Thank you.
You’re very welcome!
I just made this and OMG!!!! So delicious, I was trying to put it in the glass container but I kept eating it, This is must to make!!!
Hahah I love it! Sign of a good recipe!
This sauce is amazing! We put it on tacos instead of guacamole and it was way better. Making this all the time now!
Yaaa! I’m so happy you like it, too!!
Made this last night and used smoked jalapenos (smoked from my Traeger) and this was awesome! Thanks for the recipe! YUM!
Smoked jalapeños? They sound incredible!!!
This sounds delicious. Does the lime keep it from turning brown? If not, how long does it stay green?
It does! I’ve kept it in the fridge for up to a week without it changing color!
I will try this recipe wen I return home
I hope you like it as much as I do!
Looks like a great easy and versatile sauce. I am most impressed that you did not add mayo (which I detest).
If you don’t like mayo in your sauces, keep an eye out for a post that I’ll publish next week. I have 7 mayo free sauces to share with you!
Shouldn’t it have Aji peppers if it’s in the title?
Aji means chili pepper and in this recipe, I’ve subbed japapenño.
perfect! i was looking for something for my tacos! 🙂
This is seriously my favourite guacamole for tacos. Hope you love it too!
The number one complaint I have about most guacamoles is that they just taste like AVOCADO- I need more cilantro!!! This recipe looks like it is right up my alley, thanks for sharing!
I hope this guacamole hits the spot for you! Let me know how you like it 🙂
