Every body loves Mexican food and when you get hold of a recipe that is backed by somebody that comes from Mexico, you know you have to try it.
Well today I present to you a recipe from the beautiful land of Mexico. I will warn you, you must like it spicy – but that’s Mexican food, right!
This recipe is for a jalapeno spread that, if in the wrong hands, could throw you for a loop! You can use this with nachos, tacos, burritos, or anything that ends in ‘os’. Just remember to use it wisely, this is not for the beginner.
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons diced canned jalapeno peppers
2 teaspoons juice from canned jalapeno peppers
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
In a blender or food processor, mix together the mayonnaise, diced jalapenos, jalapeno juice, cumin, sugar, paprika, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder.
Blend until smooth and jalapeno is completely pureed, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt, as needed.
Then hang onto your hat and use it as a dip or a spread.
