This chile lime sauce is a great side sauce for dipping everything from pork kebabs and chicken tenders, to topping fajitas. It also makes a delicious marinade for any kind of meat. The choice is entirely yours.
2 small green serrano chiles, seeded, finely chopped
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, from 4 limes
2 tablespoons lime zest, from 2 limes
1/3 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 to 3 cloves garlic, quartered
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
Gather the ingredients.
Place all ingredients into a food processor blender. Blend mixture well.
Bring sauce to a simmer over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 more minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Follow the above directions, if using as a marinade, but let the sauce cool for 30 minutes before using. Marinade beef for 6 to 12 hours, chicken and pork for 4 to 6 hours, fish, seafood, and vegetables for 30 minutes.
Make this sauce ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week after preparation.
