This Habanero Avocado Cream Sauce is MUY CALIENTE! Translation: A super hot sauce for your tacos. No joking around here. This sauce is HOT
I was hosting a Mexican themed party that included salsas, tacos, bean dip, margaritas, etc. Since some of the attendees don’t like their food spicy, I decided to go easy on the spices for the taco filling but decided to whip up this Habanero Avocado Cream Sauce for those that wanted a little kick from their tacos.
I’m going to warn you ahead of time, this sauce is VERY hot. I’m sure you could dial it down by not using all the seeds from the Jalapeños and Habaneros, but I was wanted to make a super-hot sauce available to my guests.
I suggest keeping the sauce in an airtight container for no more than a couple of days. This sauce will start to turn brown (because of the avocados) after a few days.

Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
