Jalapeno Cilantro Dressing

I use this sauce for tacos, dipping sauce with veggies and salad dressing. This is the dressing for the Carnitas Salad.Preparation time: 5-10 minutes

Makes: 1 Cup


2 Jalapenos, seeded and rough chopped (*reserve some seeds to add to mix if jalapeno isn’t spicy enough)

• 2 Cloves Garlic, rough chopped

• 1/2 Cup Cilantro, rough chopped

• 1 Lime, Juiced

• 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise

• 1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan

• Salt and Pepper, to taste

Note: First taste your jalapenos. If they’re hot discard seeds if they’re on the mild side add in some of the seeds. Taste add more if needed.


1.) Add everything to blender and blitz. Taste to see you want more spice if so add some seeds, and reblitz.

If you don’t have a blender you can prepare in a molcajete. Instructions below.

I mixed the first four ingredients in a molcajete once combined I added the mayo and parmesan and pestle until well combined.

Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
