Avocado & Cilantro Lime Sauce

I felt such confusion this weekend. On Saturday I walked into my child’s room because it was 7:30am, Indigo never sleeps this late. I walked in and she took one look at me, then said “Mommy I want to rest some more.” This is where my very profound confusion set in.

I have never in all of my 4 1/2 years with her ever been told that she wants to go back to sleep. You can imagine that delight did not set in, I was confused, I was panicked… Many things were running through my head at this point.

1. How sick must my child be to want to sleep 14 hours?
2. Where is that damn thermometer, and why can’t I keep it in one spot?
3. Why is Nancy Grace so obnoxious?

The first 2 questions have answers don’t bother with that third question. My poor little Indigo was subdued with a high fever of 104. The sad thing is…it was wonderful for her mommy. They sure do grow up fast, because I haven’t taken care of her like that for what seems like decades.

I cuddled her, stroked her sweet head, dosed her up with kid medicines, and watched 17 Barbie Movies in a row and Chipwrecked…twice. I brought her things like toast, grapes, and ice water. Indigo instead chose 2 pieces of bacon, a GoGurt, and 5 sippy's of milk….yes it was against my better judgement to feed her such things not knowing the state of her stomach…however I played my odds and won.

Speaking of won, these tacos are a wonner…umm, I mean a winner! The sauce is as lovely as Nancy Grace, just kidding this sauce kicks that woman’s butt.

Avocado & Cilantro Lime Sauce

1 bunch of Green Onions
1 cup Cilantro
1 Large Avocado, diced
2 Garlic Cloves
¼ cup Rice Vinegar
¼ cup Lime Juice
Salt & Pepper for taste

*Place the pit of the avocado in your finished sauce, it keeps longer that way.

Place all of it in your food processor and blend well, add salt and pepper to your liking. We used these on our Char Siu tacos. Everything served in a piping hot corn tortilla. Indigo just had bacon, a very pleasing alternative if you ask me.

PS. This recipe is borrowed and is the same except for the avocado I've added, and I can't for the life of me find the site where I stole the idea from.  Please forgive me!

Rosemary said...

I will be having that sauce . . . your lovin' must have helped Indigo more than anything. (I'm a lot older than you and I still can't keep a thermometer in one place!)

Pam said...

That sauce with the pork sounds really tasty! Hope your precious Indigo is doing great now!

Nancy Grace---she's a wacko, or even better, a pit bull!

Alicia said...

Chris said...

Dude! (Dudette!)
I can't wait to try this with some of my pulled pork. Genius!

Joyti said...

I'm glad your little one is better. She seems super-adorable.

Ooo, that sauce sounds amazing.

Val said...

All I need is a spoon and I could eat that entire container.

Pam said...

My kids are 10 & 7 so they really don't need me much. When they are sick they still need me and it feels so good!

Loving that sauce and the tacos look amazing too!!

I was googling the ingredients I wanted to use in a sauce and found this. Sounds perfect! I will be using it on a flame grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast with corn on the cob and wild rice.

That the sauce will keep better if it's stored with the pit is fascinating, but totally beside the point. Unless it needs to be stored more than about eight minutes. (Yum!)
