This spicy Jalapeno Chimichurri Sauce is a fresh take on a more traditional chimichurri. It’s unexpectedly slightly sweet with a tangy brightness that pairs well with so many dishes. Use it to top your favorite veggies, as a dip, or even as a salad dressing!

I really love a good chimichurri sauce. This spicy, delicious sauce originated in Argentina and usually has parsley, garlic, oregano, and spice from crushed red pepper. I decided to make a totally new spin on this classic and spice mine with jalapeno, accent with lime, and add a squeeze of maple syrup. It came together even better than I hoped it would!

Since it’s got so much spicy, robust flavor from the jalapeno and garlic, I added lime for some tang and brightness. At the last minute I tried it with some maple syrup to balance out the spice, and it was like the secret sauce that took it to the next level!
