Servings 1 cup (approx.)


  • 1/2 cup sour cream (regular or light)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup fresh cilantro (adjust to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (regular or light)
  • 1/2 jalapeno (rib and seeds removed and cut into pieces)
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 cup milk (optional)


  • Pulse jalapeno pieces in a small food processor until chopped into small pieces.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, except for the milk, and blend until smooth. Adding more cilantro will make the sauce greener.
  • If you desire a thinner sauce, add small amounts of milk and blend, until you achieve the desired consistency. Adjust salt depending on your preference.
