Habanero-Cilantro Taco Sauce

Saturday night friends came over to help us test the Chile-Spiced Skirt Steak Tacos recipe from the Test Kitchen challenge last week. The tacos received rave reviews, truly a fantastic recipe.  This sauce was a little something extra I created to garnish the tacos in place of sour cream. Habaneros really bring the heat, so this sauce is for those wanting that extra kick—a great garnish on tacos, fajitas, burritos, grilled fish or chicken.

Habanero-Cilantro Taco Sauce

2           whole  habanero chile — stemmed, seeded, finely chopped
1/4        cup  cilantro leaves — chopped
1/4        cup  sour cream
1/4        cup  yogurt — plain

Remove the stem and seeds of the chilies and chop fine. The heat of this sauce can be adjusted by using more or less of the chile.

Add the chilies and chopped cilantro to the yogurt and sour cream and mix well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer before serving.

Note: Always use gloves when handling chilies to avoid absorbing the oils into the skin.
