Variations Ideas:

  • Jalapenos – We used pickled jalapenos in this recipe. But if you prefer you can use fresh jalapeno peppers. It will change the flavor of the sauce as it might be a bit spicier. You may need to add in a tablespoon of vinegar to help balance the flavor if using fresh jalapenos.
  • Seasoning – Feel free to change the seasoning to what you prefer. We have added in a ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper for a spicier taste. You can even add a teaspoon sugar for a hint of sweetness.

Step by Step Instructions: 

  • Step 1 – Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender.  Pulse until smooth and creamy.

  • Step 2 – Chill until ready to enjoy! 

Recipe Tips:

  • Combining Ingredients – We like to combine everything in a food processor but you can also use a blender. You want the texture to be smooth and creamy. Scrape the sides of the food processor after blending to make sure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Chill Sauce – Allow the sauce to chill for at least 2 hours before serving. This helps the ingredients to blend easily for an easy copycat Taco Bell Quesadilla Sauce.
  • Ingredients – When making this recipe, we recommend using full fat sour cream. The low fat option may not taste the same and the texture may turn out different.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I Freeze Sauce?

We do not recommend freezing this sauce since is a mayo and sour cream base. Once you thaw the sauce the texture will break down and may not taste as good. If you do decide to freeze it, make sure to place in a freezer safe container.

How to Store Leftovers:

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week. 

Can I Make Ahead of Time?

Yes you can make this ahead of time. When I meal prep for the week, I like to make my homemade sauces and seasoning.

This gives time for the sauce to thicken and the ingredients to marinate together. Just store in the fridge in a jar to easily use with your favorite recipes.
