Photo: A Sweet Life


1 ripe California avocado
1 chopped jalapeño, seeds removed
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp avocado oil
1/8 to 1/4 tsp chipotle powder or chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 to 4 tbsp water
4 medium zucchini
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled


In a blender or food processor, combine avocado, jalapeño, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, avocado oil, chipotle or chili powder, and salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Add water a few tbsp at a time and continue to process until a thick but pourable consistency is achieved.

Cut zucchini with a spiral cutter. Cook uncovered in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes on high, until hot and just tender.

Divide zucchini among 4 plates and top with avocado sauce and crumbled bacon. Serve warm.
