  • Wash the jalapeño peppers and remove the stems. Cut them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and membranes for a milder sauce or leave them in for a spicier sauce.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, lightly toast the jalapeño peppers and the garlic clove for about 5 minutes until they are slightly charred and softened. Remove from heat and let them cool.
  • In a blender or food processor, combine the toasted jalapeños, garlic, sour cream, mayonnaise, cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, and white vinegar.
  • Blend the ingredients until you achieve a smooth and creamy sauce. If the sauce is too thick, you can add a splash of water to reach your desired consistency.
  • Taste the sauce and add salt according to your preference.
