Recipe Notes

  • To lighten this mayonnaise and sour cream-based Mexican sauce up, you could use light mayonnaise and light sour cream, or replace the sour cream with Greek yogurt.
  • For spice, stir in some minced fresh jalapeno.
  • To add some smoky flavor, chop up a chipotle in adobe sauce. 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients. 
  2. Season with salt and pepper. Chill until ready to use.

Iā€™m putting this on chicken and beef and rice. Yummy.
In Spain we call it "pink sauce" although I would not have imagined putting it in tacos... We use it for salads.
