OMG- loved this! I had to add a couple of cloves of chopped garlic. This is like a spicy ranch dressing. Going to try it as a tortilla chip dip next with even more cilantro and jalapeno. Read More

I love cilantro so I definitely wanted to try this recipe out. I would say it's average but I'd definitely try to make it again but tweak the recipe. I definitely think there was too much mayo and sour cream. The jalapeno was a great idea; gave it a tiny bit of a kick. Read More

Yum! Used it as a mexican vegetable salad dressing but I am also going to use it as a dip for Indian Naan Bread! I only used 1 1/5 jalepenos but it needed 2. Also I think it can do without the worchestershire sauce and it needed plenty of salt and pepper. Thanks! Read More

My husband & I loved this. Served it over sliced tomatoes & stirred some into pre-packed coleslaw mix. Also made the "spicy garlic lime chicken" from this site & we were dipping our chicken in it. We are trying to decide what we want to eat it with next. Thank you for the great recipe. It is such a nice change of pace for a salad dressing. Read More

This was very good. I added a clove of garlic to the other ingredients and processed in the blender with about 1/4 cup olive oil then added only 1/2 cup of light mayo. Didn't use the sour cream at all. Read More

Tonight I am grilling chicken breasts and going to use this over them! We are also excited to try it on fish tacos and grilled salmon! This is a super easy quick sauce to keep on hand for many different dishes! THANK YOU!!! Read More

I only used 1 whole jalapeno.... woo baby!!! I actually like hot food and I think it had the right amount of heat when put on food. This is a keeper. I sub the mayo with Olive oil and there did not seem to be any difference in flavor. I think the jalapeno dominated somewhat. Read More
