This iconic creamy sauce gets its robust, luscious flavor from fresh chiles, lime, scallions, and plenty of cilantro. A hit of fresh mint might not be classic, but it brightens the flavor even more. It’s traditionally served alongside rotisserie or slow-roasted chicken, but it’s equally delicious with grilled chicken
, fish, or steak.
Any leftovers make a terrific dip for crudité or topping for roasted vegetables like potatoes; or thin it out with lemon juice and olive oil for a creamy salad dressing.
