In a food processor or blender, combine avocados, green onions, garlic, cumin, Greek yogurt, lime juice, milk and taco seasoning. Pulse until combined and creamy. If too thick, add a little more milk. Taste and add salt and pepper.
Serve with pasta salad either by drizzling with sauce (as shown) or toss to coat pasta and veggies. Enjoy!
