We are lovers of hot sauces. You too? Then this simple Jalapeño sauce is a great option to try. The jalapeño pepper is mild, but not all jalapeños are equally hot. The sauce can be made as spicy or mild as you like. For a milder sauce, remove the seeds and stems. For a hotter version, just leave everything in.
The recipe is deadly simple. Remove the seeds and glands from the jalapeño peppers and then throw everything in a blender until the consistency is to your liking. Then you can season it with a little salt or some extra lime juice.
By the way, if you are not crazy about cilantro, which we can’t imagine, you can also use flat-leaf parsley. This sauce can also be made with other peppers instead of jalapeños. You can also take serrano, cayenne, or if you’re a real pepper head, habanero peppers.
If you think the sauce is too sharp, you can heat it in a frying pan. 2 minutes while stirring is enough. The result is a milder sauce.
This jalapeño sauce tastes great with all Mexican dishes such as tacos, tortillas, or quesadillas. You could also throw a big scoop through the chili or on your pizza. What are you going to do with this sauce?
