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

I slip it into salads, use it in wraps, put it in salad dressings, and have even liquified it in soup. It was time to make a savory spicy avocado sauce to pour over chicken and zoodles.

You can use this paleo avocado sauce on top of anything - grilled fish, meat, vegetables, 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.

Or leave out the spice entirely and add some cumin for a Mexican style avocado sauce.

Chicken and zoodles with spicy avocado sauce

This chicken and zoodles 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 with as heavy or as light of a hand as you like.

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!
