Avocado sauce prepared with lime

Avocado sauce is a sauce prepared using avocado as a primary ingredient.[1] It is a mass-produced food product, and commercial sauces are typically prepared to have a thin, sauce-like consistency that is pourable.[1][2] Commercial preparation involves mixing the avocado using high-speed blenders, which breaks up the pulp.[1] Spices, water and emulsifiers are added, and the resultant product is then typically frozen to prevent browning.[1]

Additional ingredients in avocado sauce can include tomatillo, onion, chili peppers, cilantro and garlic.[3][2]

Uses[edit]

Avocado sauce is used as an ingredient and topping for meat dishes and dishes such as fajitas, taquitos and tacos, among others.[2][4][5]
