I call this an avocado dressing because I use it as a salad dressing. It can be used for a number of other items too. It makes a great dip for chips and vegetables, or it is really good on tacos. If you are making any type of Mexican food you can replace the sour cream with the avocado dressing. I have to tell you that it does have some heat that will wake up your taste buds instantly. You will not want to use all of the jalapeno called for in the recipe if you do not like spicy food.
