How To Make Keto Spicy Cilantro Garlic Sauce

Making this sauce truly is so easy that anyone can make it. You simply toss all of your ingredients in your blender or food processor and blend until smooth. That’s really it! 

When making the sauce it’s easy to customize to you and your family’s liking. Not a fan of spicy food? Just leave out the jalapeno seeds for less heat or don’t add the jalapeno at all for no heat.

You can also control the heat by adding only half of the jalapeno and tasting before adding more. If your sauce is too thick you can add a little more olive oil or thicken it by adding more mayonnaise. 

Whatever your preference, you can customize this sauce to your liking. You can even add in a teaspoon of our keto Tex-Mex seasoning for a more complex flavor!

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

In case you don’t know, our family came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.  I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith.

Okay I thought I didn’t like Cilantro, but I tried this recipe because I love the Fit To Serve recipes. We loved it. I made the Mexican Skillet and drizzled this sauce on. It is so delicious!
