Blackened Jalapeño and Avocado Dipping Sauce

Sugar-conscious, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Dip tortilla chips or raw veggies into this creamy sauce or use it as you would salsa, spooning it over roast meat and fish.

Makes about 3 cups, Serves 6

2 large jalapeños
2 large cloves garlic, peeled
2 large Hass avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
2 tablespoons lime juice
Salt to taste

Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add jalapeños and garlic and cook, shaking the skillet often, until tender and blackened on all sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Set aside to let cool.

Seed and stem jalapeños then transfer to blender along with garlic. Add avocados, lime juice and salt and puree until somewhat smooth. With blender still running, slowly drizzle in about 1/2 cup water. Continue to puree until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl and serve.
