Jalapeno-Cilantro Sauce
~makes about 1.5 cups


  • 3 Jalapenos, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
  • 5 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. Honey Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tbsp. Lime Juice
  • 1 tbsp. White Vinegar
  • Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 oz. Fresh Cilantro (about 1 cup), stemmed
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil


1. Add jalapenos, garlic, mustard, lime juice, vinegar, and a healthy pinch of kosher salt to a blender.  Pulse until contents are pulverized and liquid, use a spoon to scrape down sides as necessary.

2. Add cilantro and run on blender on medium speed.  Begin to slowly drizzle in olive oil.  Continue until half of oil is added.  Stop to scrape down sides, ensure that everything is fully processed (no chunks) before continuing to add oil.  Continue pouring oil in slowly while on medium.

Serve immediately with your favorite Latin dish or refrigerate.
