Serrano Cilantro Sauce

Sauce.  Condiment.  Dressing.  Dip.  Call it what you want and use it how you like.  It’s spicy and delicious no matter what your terminology is.  

Awhile back, I was trying to think up a spicy, green-sauce style of goodness for our brisket tacos and I came up with this.  The creaminess of it goes so well drizzled over a Mexican or TexMex meal.  Now let’s fast forward to yesterday, I had a craving for a big ol taco salad and thought “Hey!  Why not use this as a salad dressing too??” Excellent choice, self.

You won’t mind making this often since it’s as easy as 1-2-3!  You add the ingredients to your blender, pulse and enjoy!  Done.  *If you’re like us and finish your jar worth in a week tops, then the simplicity in preparing this is an awesome perk! 

The Starting Lineup

  • 4 Serrano Peppers
  • 1 small bushel of Cilantro
  • 3/4 cup ofMayonnaise 
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Ignore the sour cream in this pic… I was going to try it (go ahead if you like) but thought it wasn’t needed.  So save it for you taco salad! 😉

As far as ‘prep work’ goes with the above ingredients, all I needed to do was rinse the veggies, chop off the stems on the serranos (leave in the seeds and ribs!) and peel the garlic cloves.  Once that’s done in mere minutes, add everything to your blender, liquids first.



I pulsed my blender a few times till my desired consistency was achieved.  Personally, I like it to resemble a ranch dressing in thickness.  If you want it thinner add a tbsp+ of water.



Seal it up, store in your fridge and begin to get things ready for your fiesta….💃
