A rich and herby hot sauce perfect for any dish like seafood or Mexican as it adds heat and taste to simple flavors. A dipping sauce is the perfect addition to any meal as it allows you to elevate the flavor palate to your personal preference. Have a friend who can’t take heat? Just place this hot sauce on the side and everyone else can dip away!
2 ½ cups
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
5 Serrano chiles, seeded and finely diced
4 garlic cloves
2 cups Greek yogurt (try honey yogurt if you care for sweet)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon salt
- Purée all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
- Since this is a cream-based sauce (not vinegar based) it will have a shorter life in your refrigerator, so use it within a week or so.
Note: great on seafood such as fish tacos, crab cakes, or tilapia.
