Habanero peppers really bring the heat, so this sauce is for those wanting that extra kick—a great garnish on tacos, fajitas, burritos, grilled fish or chicken.
Saturday night friends came over to help us test the Chile-Spiced Skirt Steak Tacos recipe which was a bit hit all around. The tacos received rave reviews, a truly a fantastic recipe. This sauce was a little something extra I created to garnish the tacos in place of sour cream.
Habanero-Cilantro Taco Sauce
- 2 habanero chile stemmed, seeded, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt
- Remove the stem and seeds of the chilies and chop fine. The heat of this sauce can be adjusted by using more or less of the chile.
- Add the chilies and chopped cilantro to the yogurt and sour cream and mix well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer before serving.
No doubt, this is spicy but we really enjoyed it on tacos this week.
I love combining something creamy with something hot they are a perfect taste match!
