Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce Recipe

I wanted to try something new with my stuffed peppers tonight and use red/sweet peppers instead of green bell peppers. Since the red peppers tend to be sweeter, I wanted to add a sauce that would be the perfect amount of tart and punch.

Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce

You need:
16 oz sour cream
1 bunch of cilantro
2 limes, will make about 1/4 cup of juice
8 green onions
garlic powder
chipotle powder
salt & pepper

Roughly chop cilantro and green onions, then add them to the blender.

Add all 16oz of sour cream.

Squeeze the limes to make about 1/4 cup of juice, then add it to the blender as well.

Blend on high until smooth.

Add seasonings to taste. I used about 1/4 tbsp of ground cumin, 1/2 tbsp garlic powder, 1/4 tbsp chipotle, and 1/2 tbsp each of salt and pepper.

Serve alongside spicy or Mexican-inspired dishes for a nice pairing. Our peppers and sauce are pictured below. :)
