Cilantro Pepper Sauce

 I made this sauce to top the Savory Corn Cheesecake.   I only used a little bit, cause honestly, a little goes a long way, flavor and spice wise.  And I wanted to play with the little bottle of Tajin seasoning I picked up the other day. 

I then proceeded to top some scrambled eggs, a cheese enchilada and other assorted dishes until I ran out.  

Not only did this make my mouth sing, but it got up and did a nice tap routine and a tango.


Don't worry, I won't overshare any more, but will share this recipe.

In some respects it's similar to a Zhoug, but there's no garlic or onion in it.

It's very simple.   

I did try to mix everything up with my little food processor but ended up getting the immersion blender out and using it. I thought that the sauce was too runny, so I added a little more cream and took advantage of the immersion blender and whipped it up a bit. That thickened the sauce beautifully. 

When I did a final? taste test, decided it was missing, something.  So I sprinkled some Tajin seasoning on top, and that was it.

 I've tried stirring a little of the Tajin into some of the sauce, but I think it tasted better sprinkled on top.
