Spicy Cilantro Sauce

BBQ’s are all over the place thanks to summer weather. So with all the great tasting meat and chicken you have to have a sauce to compliment them. Here’s a sauce I made that tasted great and tastes real good with barbequed meat and chicken. It’s almost like chimichurri sauce but with no tomatillos, instead I used cilantro. (I had none at the time and wasn’t about to go out and get them).

1-2 bunches of cilantro

3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed

2-4 jalapenos chopped (can add more if you want it spicier)

1-2 tbsp of olive oil

2 tsp of lemon juice (can be freshly squeezed as well)

Salt to taste


1. Cut off stems of cilantro bunches, wash, and place in food processor. Also put in garlic, jalapenos, olive oil and lemon juice. Blend together.

2. Put about a few teaspoons of water. Don’t put too much! As it might get watery and it ruins the sauce.

3. If you want the sauce thicker, don’t add so much water. If you want it a little on the runny side, add more.

4. Add in salt to taste, blend again until consistency is to your liking, pour into ramekins or dishes.

5. Ready to eat with your meat/chicken!

Note: you can also use this sauce to eat with tortilla chips! It’s really good!
