This sauce is mildly spiced as we have removed the core and the seeds of jalapeno while making the sauce.
Since we have removed the entire white membrane and the seeds, this avocado sauce is low in heat. However, if you prefer the sauce with flaming hot, add the jalapeño as a whole(along with the seeds and the pith).
We made this sauce only with the flesh of the jalapeño. Hence, it will be mildly hot. If you still prefer bringing down the heat further, swap half of the jalapeños quantity with the green pepper.
This way the peppery flavor is retained with the minimal heat in jalapeno avocado sauce. And you may also adjust the combination of the jalapeño and the green pepper to suit your heat tolerance.
