creamy jalapeño dip

I got hooked on this creamy cilantro sauce and I decided to create a version that had a little spicy kick to it. It was a small tweak but it creates a big flavor! If you’re a spice lover, this one is for you. This sauce makes a great vegetable dip but it’s also delicious on roasted vegetables, as a sandwich spread, drizzled over tacos, or spread on a veggie burger.


  • Cilantro– Fresh cilantro is a must. That’s what really brings a lot of flavor to this recipe.
  • Mayonnaise– If you wanted to make this recipe vegan, you can use Veganaise instead.
  • Jalapeño– I recommend tasting the jalapeño to see how spicy it is as the spice levels can vary a lot. For a spicier flavor, add the seeds and the pith. For a less spicy flavor, use just the green part of the pepper.
  • Lime juice- This adds a bright, zingy flavor to the dip.
