Outstanding! Used FF 1/2 & 1/2 and low fat mayo ... 4 serranos and 4 cloves of garlic ... 3/4 of a bunch of cilantro. I poured it over Tilapia and baked them. Served with rice and roasted asparagus. We just LOVED this sauce ... next time I'll add at least 1 more serrano pepper. After dinner we were looking for a snack and ate this with tortilla chips ... delicious that way also! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!!


The is awesome! I roasted the chillies, and removed the charred skin and seeds. I alsoadded juice from 1/2 a lime and 3/4 tsp of sugar. Very good on top of fajitas.


I've decided I really like this. I followed this recipe exactly and let it meld a day or so. I used it on some broiled tilapia filets and it was good. DH said it tastes a little bit like a spicy ranch dip. (?) I think next time I'll do as Krazykhat suggested and add a squeeze of lime. My husband and I both think this would make a great dip for a veggie tray. I'm glad I tried it. This recipe will come in handy. Thank you for posting.
