Jalapeño Cilantro Sauce Recipe - Chichilicious

Would you like some heat with that? This is a spicy, fresh herb sauce that goes well with everything. I made it as a dipping sauce for some chicken taquitos, and I had some left over so I also used it with breaded fish fillets. It would also pair great with anything you grill on the BBQ this summer.

You can adjust the heat by keeping all the seeds in the peppers or removing them for a more mild flavour.
