Avacado Sauce on chicken tacos


I'm going to be making chicken tacos tonight and I want to make an avacado sauce to drizzle over the tacos. I can't seem to find anything I like on the interwebz.

Can someone give me some direction.

1 ripe avocado
1 jalapeno, seeded
1 C water
1 TB white vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/3 C chopped cilantro
2 TB diced onion

Combine ingredients in a food processor and pulse until pureed.
you can sub out a half cup of water for a half cup of our cream to get it creamier.

If you can find crema, that would be better than sour cream.

1 fresh, whole jalapeño pepper(use half for less spicy or the entire pepper if you like it hot)
2 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup cilantro
2 limes, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 avocado, in big slices or chunks
1/2 cup cream or half and half

Place coconut milk, jalapeño, cilantro, ginger, garlic, lime juice and zest, agave nectar, and olive oil in the blender. Puree until smooth.

Heat in a saucepan, add the cream or half and half, and the avocado. When warmed, turn off the stove and puree with an immersion mixer.

Another suggestion is this creamy tomatillo dressing. I could literally drink this stuff.


Ingredients
1 packet TRADITIONAL Hidden Valley Ranch mix (not BUTTERMILK)
1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. buttermilk
2 tomatillos, remove husk, diced
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic
juice of 1 lime
1 jalapeno

Directions
Mix all ingredients together in the blender.

This is best made the day before, but is amazing if you eat it right away too.
