Spicy Avocado Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, seeded and diced
  1. Melt butter in a medium pan and add onion, jalapeno, red pepper flakes, and salt. Saute for about 3 minutes or until onion and pepper start to soften. Add milk and avocados and heat until warmed.
  2. Transfer mixture to a blender (here is where I love my Vita-Mix!) and process until very smooth. Return sauce to pan and heat until very hot. Taste and adjust seasonings to taste. If you think the sauce is too thick for your taste, add milk a little at a time until it is the consistency you prefer. Go slowly, because once it is thinned out, you can't go back!
  3. Note: You can add items like chopped cilantro, parsley, sesame oil, or a dash of nutmeg. Set a little bit aside in a small bowl and add things to it to see what you like! It's a fun sauce to play around with.
