Classic Peruvian green sauce for chips. Can be as mild or spicy as you want. Not salsa in the typical latin restaurant sense of the word, just a unique savory and tangy sauce for dipping. Refrigerate and keep for weeks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add all ingredients and blend until smooth.
  2. Use peppers, garlic, and salt to taste. Experiment as necessary, you can't go wrong. (For mild version, use 1/4 to 1/2 jalepeno pepper and remove seeds).
  3. I recommend allowing to refrigerate a bit before serving to set and let flavors mix.
  4. Serve with bread or chips.

Great. We used all the jalapenos, but cut the garlic clove in half. No mayo for us, just the oil and a bit of lime juice. We seeded and deveined the pepper, but it was not overwhelmingly spicy. Thank you for posting.

3 jalapenos!!? I used ONE, and I was overwhelmed in heat!! This has a good flavor... but seriously I don't see how anyone could ever use 3 jalapenos... unless they were TINY, and ALL the seeds were removed. Also I used Lime juice rather than lemon.
