Cilantro Cream Sauce (Tastes Like Guacamole)

"This sauce is AMAZING! Not only is great as a sauce over chicken or enchiladas, its great as a dip for chips too! Amazingly to me it tastes like guacamole even though there is no avocado. I put some serving suggestions at end of recipe that i think would be great too. You have to try it and know that served hot or cold it will be a great hit. Enjoy!"

  1. This is amazing! I added some jalepeno seasoning salt and onion powder, left the lime out. Made the sauce then browned some chicken and poured this over it and let it simmer for about 10 min. Yum!
  2. EXCELLENT Sauce! It was sooo GOOD! I made it with the non-alcoholic beer batter for fish and it was fantastic. My friends liked this for dip alone with pita chips. Awesome recipe as usual from Cooking in Cairo! I'm so excited to try more of your recipes!


<p>I'm an American living in Cairo, have lots of free time and love to cook! My friend told me I know the science of food, that I am a food scientist; I was like what??? She said that I put together ingredients that she would never think of, that I know what goes with what, what tastes and works... honestly I really don't know about that, but I do love cooking. I like experimenting and making delicious, but simple meals. I love fresh ingredients, spices and enjoy preparing food for friends. I am so pleased when I see the enjoyment they get from my food. Please be patient with my recipe posts, some may seem lengthy, but I like to explain well so you will get it the first time. I appreciate this from others, so I hope you will too. Also, I never measure anything, so I will try my best to give measurements that will work for you. Anyway, enjoy my recipes on!</p>
