This Avocado “salsa” can be used on just about anything! From dipping chips, to topping grilled chicken, to using on a hamburger or sandwich, it adds great flavor!


  • 1 large avocado, seeded
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cilantro, lightly packed
  • 1 (4.5- ounce) can chopped green chilis
  • 1/4 cup roasted, salted pepitas
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • juice of 1 large lime (2- tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large jalapeño, ribs and seeds removed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Place all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth.
  2. Add more water by the tablespoon if a thinner consistency is desired.
  3. Cover and chill until ready to use.


I like to give this at least an hour of chill time before serving, so the flavors have time to combine.

I noted you can add a little more water if you prefer a thinner consistency. You can also add more lime juice instead, which will also thin it out, but give it a more tart flavor, which is a nice option too!

Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
