Cilantro Jalapeno Crema

Want an authentic, traditional crema sauce just like you find when vacationing in Mexico. Here it is and it’s easier than you think to make.


  • 3 TB fresh Cilantro
  • half a Jalapeno
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 TB Queso Fresco
  • 1 cup Mexican Crema
  • pinch of salt

Using a food processor add all of the above ingredients and process until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.

Tips: When using Jalapeno remember that if you like mild heat then remove the seeds and membrane, but if you like it hot leave them in place. I love using this crema when making my nachos, but it’s also great on tacos or taquitos.
