Quick Picante Sauce

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Barenakedchef

From Tastefully Simple "Hot pepper sauce and a jalapeno pepper give this snappy sauce just the right amount of zip. It makes a great dip for tortilla chips or a tangy sauce for tacos and fajitas. "This is always a big hit at parties and office gathering," writes Barbara Sellers of Shreveport, Louisiana. "I even make it for my mother when she needs to bring a dip to a party."

This is a very tasty and simple recipe for a picante sauce. Made last night and followed the directions except for I did cut down on the fresh cilantro and added another half of jalapeno...I used red onions and at the end added a few green onions sliced real thin for some more color (and to use them up). Definately will make this again. Thank you. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
