Avocado Salsa Verde

Sweet Potato Burrito + Avocado Salsa Verde

Serves: 4


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup mild salsa verde, jarred (such as Herdez)
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 tsp fresh jalapeño, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ¼ cup packed cilantro leaves
  • Up to 2 tablespoons water, to thin as necessary
  • Sea salt, to taste


  1. In a food processor, combine the avocado, salsa verde, garlic, jalapeño (skip this if your salsa is spicy) and lime juice. Blend. Add the cilantro and blend again.
  2. Add water to thin out the sauce if desired; the sauce should slide easily off a spoon. Taste and blend in some sea salt or add another squeeze of lime if necessary.
  3. This sauce should taste like a real kick in the mouth; you’ll know you’re done when you can’t stop going in for another spoonful.
