Spicy Jalapeño + Garlic Taco Sauce (Vegan, Taco Deli Doña Sauce)
If you like hot and spicy flavors like I do, you will love this replication of the Doña Sauce from Taco Deli!
This recipe contains: jalapeños, garlic, oil, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Exact measurements are listed below. Enjoy!
15 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup of grape seed or canola oil
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp salt
1) Place the jalapeños on a single layer baking sheet and broil them until mostly blackened and soft (about 10-12 minutes). Flip the pepper halfway through so they broil evenly. Once you take them out of the oven, put them in an air tight container for about 10 minutes. While they're steaming in the container...
2) Peel your 15 cloves of garlic and then use the same tray to broil the garlic for about 5 minutes. Make sure you do not broil them any longer than that, you don't want them to burn - it will change the flavor of the sauce.
3) Once your jalapeños have steamed, put them on a cutting board so you can de-seed them with a spoon. Remove as many seeds as you can for a milder sauce, or keep as many as you'd like for a hotter sauce.
4) Once your jalapeños are de-seeded, place them in a food processor, along with the garlic, cilantro, lime juice, salt and oil. Blend it up until smooth! If it's too thick, add water or nut milk to get it to a smoother consistency.
