This is a recipe I made up myself. I was inspired by one on Allrecipes that was a spicy cilantro sauce. I love cilantro and thought it would be fun to make a sauce out of it. But that one called for 2 jalepeno peppers and was really spicy. I thought it would be nicer to have a cool, creamy cilantro sauce to balance the spicy flavors already present in the foods I would use the sauce on. So this is what I came up with.

Cilantro Cream Sauce

1 handful fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
½ cup sour cream
½ cup mayonnaise

Combine cilantro, lime juice, sour cream, and mayonnaise in a blender or food processor. Process until well-blended and smooth. Taste and add salt if desired.

If you like cilantro, you'll love this. It's basically a cilantro-flavored sour cream. Yummy! The first thing I put it on was Mexican Deep Dish Pan Pizza. So good. The cool creaminess of the sauce works so well with the spiciness of the beef and the salsa. It would also be great on tacos, burritos, taco salads, and pretty much anything you would normally put sour cream on.

I put it in a squeeze bottle for easy application.

The squeeze bottle makes it easy to drizzle on your favorite Mexican foods.
