We use it as a dip, as a sauce, spread, and you can even thin it out with water or oil to create a dressing or marinade. It is so good and so easy! You know those are my favorite things!

Your New Favorite Sauce
The flavors of this roasted pepper sauce are incredible. The roasted peppers give it a bit of a smoky taste while the avocado adds a creaminess you wouldn’t believe. This is about to be your new favorite sauce! You will find so many ways to enjoy this sauce! Put it on your eggs in the morning, use it as a dressing for your salad at lunch, dip veggies in it for a snack, and then douse your chicken, beef, or fish with it at dinner. Seriously, the options are endless!
Logistics and Finding Clean Roasted Peppers
The jar of roasted peppers we use has both red and yellow peppers, so our sauce has an orange hue. If you used all red peppers you’d get a brighter red sauce. We found a clean jar of roasted peppers at Trader Joe’s (TJ’s) with no added sugar or other weird ingredients. The little glass jar is TJ’s brand fire roasted yellow & red peppers. If you don’t have a TJ’s near you, look at your local Whole Foods or other health food store for something with simple ingredients and no added sugar.
