The highlights of jalapeño sour cream dip
Highly customized. Increase or decrease the heat level to your preference. Add in more herbs for extra flavors. Adjust the consistency to suit the requirement.
Economical. This recipe is cost-effective, as most of the ingredients you may already have in your kitchen.
Effortless. Make all the ingredients ready and pulse. That's it; a delectable dish is prepared in a flash of seconds.
It's an excellent side dish. Serve with fresh-cut vegetables, pepper, chips, or tortillas.
The ingredients and possible substitutions
Sour cream. I have used regular sour cream. However, you may use light or vegan sour cream as well.
Onion powder and garlic powder. These are flavor enhancers and I would highly advise you to add them in the powder form as it also thickens the jalapeno sour cream dip.
Jalapeño pepper. I have used fresh peppers. You swap with pickled jalapeno, if the fresh ones are not available.
Mayonnaise. Mayonnaise adds an excellent texture to the dip. Store-bought or homemade of them are great.
Cilantro. Optionally, you may add to brighten the flavors and substitute with the dill leaves or chives.
How to make
Add sour cream, onion powder, garlic powder, and mayonnaise in the blender. Pulse for a minute until all the ingredients combine and turn smooth in texture.
Serve with fresh-cut vegetables or sliced peppers.
Multiple ways of serving
As a base dip. Have the ingredients in this jalapeno sour cream dip as primary ingredients. Discover more flavors by adding in more ingredients, like minced garlic, and bacon, to make the dip more interesting, like this honey Sriracha sauce.
Sidekick for meat. This creamy sauce is perfect for slathering over barbecued or grilled meat.
As a topping. Drizzled over your tacos are the burgers to boost their deliciousness.
Make ahead and storage ideas
Make ahead. This is a make-ahead-friendly recipe. It is good to prepare and rest for a couple of days before.
Refrigerator. Always store in an air-sealed container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Freezing. This jalapeno sour cream dip can separate upon thawing or reheating. Hence, freezing is not a good option for storing.
