jalapeno cilantro sauce

I'm currently in love with the fresh jalapeno + cilantro flavor. There's a banh mi sandwich that I love to get from a trailer that has lots of mayo, fresh jalapeno, and cilantro. Eric and I were with some friends for happy hour last Friday and tried some chicken sliders that I think were ground chicken, mayo, cilantro and slice of jalapeno. YUM.

Last night I cooked some white fish (frozen), made this sauce and made tacos. I used butter lettuce to make a lettuce shell and Eric had tortillas. Both were so good.

You can find various recipes for a sauce like this, but ours went something like this:

2 cloves garlic
3 jalapenos
3 handfuls cilantro
2 tablespoons mayo
3 tablespoons greek yogurt
1 teaspoon white vinegar
salt + pepper
lime juice

Just put everything in a food processor. This is delicious on fish, tacos, burritos, you name it.
