Peruvian Green Sauce is a jalapeno, cilantro, garlic lover’s delight! I really must say that this is WAY BETTER than ketchup! I eat it on everything!



3 whole jalapeƱo chiles, (If you want a spicier sauce leave the seeds in!)

1 cup fresh cilantro leaves

2 medium cloves garlic

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons fresh juice from 1 lime

1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Combine all ingredients in a food processor, except for the olive oil.

Blend, while pulsing and scraping down sides of bowl, until fully processed.

With machine going, drizzle in olive oil to form an emulsion similar to mayonnaise. This will thicken upon being refrigerated, but is still not as thick as mayonnaise.

This should become a staple in your kitchen. It is THAT good!
