In Purrsuit of Flavours ~ Sauces

 We are joining up with our hosts, The Canadian Cats, and the Weimie Twins to present our recipes this month, and the theme is sauces.

Creamy Jalapeño Dressing and Dip (Yes, it IS a sauce!)
 
Creamy jalapeño dressing is like ranch
with a spicy Mexican kick, and it is delicious on tortilla chips, salads
and tacos. Or to dip crunchy veggies!

 

This is great on just about anything in the realm of Text Mex food:
tacos, burritos, quesadillas, salads, chips. Or just plain old crunchy
veggies!

  1. Charlee: “Our Dada loves spicy food like this!”
    Chaplin: “Yes, he routinely ignores recipe instructions that say to seed jalapenos or other hot peppers.”
    Lulu: “What about like habaneros?”
    Charlee: “I think he does seed those.”
    Chaplin: “Yeah we said he loves spicy food, not that he’s insane.”
