Creamy Cilantro Garlic Sauce

Sharing is caring!

This creamy cilantro garlic sauce will be your best friend for arepas, pastelitos and even with some chips. It’s a packed-flavor dipping sauce made with everyday ingredients.

The day I took these pictures I made some chicken tinga tacos and it was AMAZING!

You can even prepare a big batch and save it into a squeeze bottle or sauce dispenser and store it in the fridge for up to 2 months.

I just can’t find a store-bought option that has more flavor than my homemade version. The fresh cilantro “stains” the sauce with a mild green tone because of the juices inside the cilantro leaves. This is 100% more powerful flavor than dried cilantro or powered cilantro — which is the type used in most store-bought sauces.

In the same way, fresh garlic is more pungent and spicy that powdered garlic. So, this cilantro garlic sauce is all fresh ingredients for a better result.

How to make the cilantro garlic sauce?

This sauce is especially great when you need a dipping sauce that is versatile and that you can make in less than 1 minutes.  To make this sauce, basically, you add all the ingredients to the food processor — or a blender — and process until you get a creamy and aromatic cilantro garlic sauce.

It’s THAT easy.
