How to make jalapeno mustard
I will walk through this recipe with pictures and instructions here. Bet you will find your printable recipe card at the end of the post.
First, let's see what ingredients make the sauce extraordinary.
Dijon Mustard: Ah, the French touch! Dijon elevates the flavor profile, adding a smooth, sophisticated tang.
Yellow Mustard: The classic store-bought ingredient! This provides a delicious mustard bite and balances the creaminess of the mayo. Swap with spicy brown mustard for a deeper, more robust flavor.
Jalapeños: The star of the show! They bring the heat, the zing, and a splash of color. Serrano peppers, habanero, or Carolina Reaper for a hotter kick.
Mayonnaise. It brings in a creamy, rich texture. Substitute with Greek yogurt for a lighter, tangier version.
Apple Cider Vinegar: This ingredient brightens the sauce, adding a dash of acidity that lifts all the other flavors.
Garlic powder. The flavoring bomb gives a robust flavor.
The recipe directions
Start by chopping your jalapeños finely. Keep the seeds in for a spicier kick, or remove them for a milder experience.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and yellow mustard until smooth.
Add the minced jalapeno, apple cider vinegar, salt, and garlic powder.
Mix everything in a good mix until well incorporated.
Cover the bowl and let it chill in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours. This melding time makes all the difference!
Serve as a dip or dressing, and ENJOY!!!

How to store?
I make them in small quantity that is good to last for a month, and I usually refrigerate them. Generally, I store them in two containers, one that I regularly use and the next for future usage.
Refrigerate. Refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 months in the refrigerator.
Freezing. You may store the jalapeno mustard sauce in two containers. Refrigerate the first for immediate use and freeze the second container for later use. Freezing is good to store for up to 6 months.
- Jalapeno honey mustard. If you prefer to be on the sweeter side, add 2 tablespoons of honey and the mustard mixture.
- Spicy jalapeno mustard. Those who feel this sauce is not spicy enough should add cayenne pepper.
- Sweet and spicy. Add sugar according to your taste for the vegan sweet and spicy version.
