  • Summary

    This spicy condiment is ubiquitous at Tex-Mex restaurants and taco trucks all over Texas. People are shocked when they learn the light green, creamy sauce is made without avocado or dairy. Our version is full of fresh jalapeño heat and bright lime, emulsified using only neutral vegetable oil.

    Ingredients

    • 5-6 jalapeños (depending on heat and personal preference), stemmed, seeded, coarsely chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
    • 5 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup neutral vegetable oil (such as grapeseed)
    • 3/4 cup (packed) fresh cilantro leaves with tender stems
