  • ½ jalapeño, seeded
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ cup packed cilantro
  • 2-3 tablespoons warm water to thin sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Add additional warm water if necessary to thin sauce so that it’s spoonable. 
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste (just a little at a time), then blend again and taste. Add more salt and pepper, if necessary. Serves 4 depending how much sauce you want. Makes about 1/2 cup sauce, about 2 tablespoons per serving. Double it if you want more sauce!
