I dined at a popular Tex-Mex chain a few weeks ago and they have a signature cilantro cream sauce that is delicious. Now, y’all know that when I taste something that is really good -I immediately think of ways to make it at home. This recipe can be used as a salad dressing , a taco sauce, or for whatever you please. To me, it’s best on a taco-but I will let you get creative with ways to use it. It has buttermilk, fresh cilantro, and jalapeño which all combine perfectly to make a sauce that will be one of your favorites to make at home. As always, please let me know how it turns out for you -and enjoy !
