Creamy Cilantro Avocado Sauce & My First Giveaway!

Oh, I'm in love with this sauce. Seriously, it's yummy!! I love anything with cilantro in it, and for me, the more cilantro the better!! And don't even get me started on avocados!! I love them!! I made this creamy delicious sauce recently to go on some tacos that I was making. I've actually made it twice in the past couple of weeks, it's that good! The first time I made it with some grilled marinated pork chops it was sooo good! Then we had it the next week with fish tacos that my hubby made (sorry no recipe for that one, he made it up as he was going). I can't wait to make this again!!

And, the secret ingredient in this yummy sauce is Greek yogurt!! I just recently found Oikos Greek yogurt, made by Stonyfield Farm in my local stores. I was so excited to see it at the store! I had heard people rave over Greek yogurt for the longest time and could never find it out here. Now I know why everyone raves about it! It's creamy and delicious and works great in this Creamy Cilantro Avocado Sauce!!

Are you ready for the giveaway!!??? I've got two great prizes to giveaway today!! One of you will be winning 4 free 5.3 oz Oikos coupons, $5.00 worth of other Stonyfield coupons, and a reusable Stonyfield shopping bag!! And the next winner will be getting a coupon for a free 16 oz Oikos yogurt along with $5 worth of other Stonyfield coupons and a nifty little magnet!! I'm so excited about this giveaway, it will give you a chance to try the yogurt and fall in love with it!! To enter the giveaway, leave me a comment on this post about your favorite recipe of mine so far!! You will have until Friday, September 11th at 10:00 pm Mountain Standard Time to enter and please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you are a winner!

I have to say the peanut butter pretzel chocolate chunk cookies. Those are soooo good! I had to make them as soon as I read the recipe.

I can't wait to try the Chile Verde! It is always my favorite thing to order at Mexican restaurants! Thanks for all the great recipes!!!

My husband and I just love the jalapeno cheese bread and the guacamole. I too can't wait to try the Chile Verde. It seems alot simpler than trying to deal with all the tomatillos at home and stuff.. I love coming on here and finding the new recipes. Almost all of them end up in my tried and true binder(or should I say binders) lol... Thanks so much

The Awesome Whole Wheat Bread is absolutely the best recipe ever! I don't buy bread any more. Dad really liked the Extreme Chicken. I liked it because it was super easy as well as yummy. I can't wait to try the Peanut Butter Chocolate Drizzle Popcorn. It looks amazing!
BTW, I've recently discovered greek yogurt. To me it seems like a super food. So much protein packed into a small serving size. It makes such yummy smoothies by adding some frozen blueberries and frozen bananas and milk. Add some splenda to make it sweeter. I'm not usually one to make smoothies because they aren't filling enough to me and have too many carbs but made with greek yogurt it's satisfying because of all the protein!

My favorite so far is the country style ribs. Its soo easy and even the picky eaters liked it!

This creamy cilantro avocado sauce would be great with fish tacos and also with flautas! Oh the possibilities!!!

This sauce looks really good but I am really excited to try some of your mexican dishes like the rice and beans and hope they turn out like the resturant. Secretly i was hoping you were giving away dinner made by you!

That would be wonderful if you could spare enough of the bitter orange seasoning to try the recipe - then I will know if I want to get an entire container!
Thanks so much Kim!!!
