The “Bomb” Sauce as Aaron calls it, is an avocado sauce you can use for almost anything! The Avocado Bomb Sauce is a must have recipe. How did we come up with this sauce? Our Firehouse Guacamole. We simply utilized ingredients from our favorite guacamole and twisted them into a sauce! Use it as a dip for egg rolls or chicken strips or some tortilla chips. Use it as a nice creamy dressing on top of a salad, like a Chicken BLTA Salad. Dress up some steaks or chicken or even omelets. Pour some on a Breakfast Muffin. Yum. So easy to make, all you need is a food processor or blender. We LOVE this sauce, hence how it got it’s name as The “Bomb” Sauce! Make this sauce your own by adding more lime, less cilantro or try our Avado Bomb Sauce spin off of Creamy Avocado Bomb Sauce also on the blog.
For a great Avocado bomb Sauce, you want really fresh ingredients. Smell the cilantro (just because I love the smell) and make sure fresh and it isn’t browned and wash very well for cilantro can have a lot of dirt in it. Get a nice juicy lime. A nice trick to getting the most from your lime is to roll it on the counter with the palm of your hand to get those juices ready. Make certain the garlic is fresh and not brown anywhere and a grab a nice bright green jalapeno. Did you know that spiciness of a jalapeno can be seen from the outside? If you like it spicy, which this sauce is, look for vertical striations on your jalapeno. If you don’t like spice, stay away from these striations(they look like stretch marks) and remove seeds before blending!
Avocados. Avocado can be tricky to pick, especially during certain seasons of the year. Look for avocados that are browned on the outside but not yet squishy. They should be slightly firm still. Stay away from bright green avocados because those are not yet ripe enough and put down anything too squishy. Lastly, let us talk about olive oil. There are many, many different varieties of olive oil. We always go with extra virgin olive oil and stay in a mid price range. I do recommend trying different varieties of olive oil because they do taste different and find what suits your taste buds. Also, I have heard that olive oil actually goes bad in a short time period even though expirations show a couple years! So if you have been using the same olive oil for 6 months, toss it and buy a new bottle. Some even recommend to replace your olive oil 30 days after opening.
How long will Avocado Bomb Sauce last and how should you store it? I get asked this all the time. I think Avocado Bomb Sauce can stay good in your fridge for around 5 days. You want to make sure it is in a tightly sealed container and if the very top browns from oxidation, which will happen avocados love to brown, remove the top layer and everything underneath is perfect! The lime and olive oil help preserve the sauce so it can last days. Although, it is so delicious so it probably won’t even make it 48 hours before being completely consumed.
