So I'm always looking for new ways to incorporate this guy into my daily diet (see above).

I did soup, so a sauce had to be the next step.

It's already been liquified.

Creating a zesty sauce allows me to put it on anything - grilled fish, my new zucchini noodles, or even as a sandwich condiment.

So many uses, so many benefits.

You can make it as spicy or as mild as you like by adjusting the amount of jalapeño and garlic.

I like garlic heat more than jalapeño so I used 2 garlic cloves and a half a pepper but play with the heat levels that work for you.

This chicken and zoodles avocado recipe runs light and loose. That means I didn't give exact measurements for the chicken and zoodles. I wanted you to make the spicy avocado sauce and then you can dollop it on whatever you like, aka these chicken and zoodles.

Do single serve. Make enough for your family or friends. You can actually make each component separately so you can bring it to work.  There are many ways to enjoy this spicy avocado sauce over chicken and zoodles!
