Cilantro Jalapeno Hollandaise Sauce

Recently, I shared with you all my garlic hollandaise sauce. Take away the garlic in that recipe, and you have your staple hollandaise sauce! This sauce has a more Mexican flair to it! Are you wondering what you can do with it? Mexican Hashy Eggs Benedict!!! On this you will layer cooked hash browns, 2 poached eggs, tomato, jalapeno, and top with the Cilantro Jalapeno hollandaise. If you don’t find jalapenos to be spicy enough, you can use Serrano peppers.

Just like my last hollandaise recipe, you don’t need a double boiler. This is practically fool proof. Just be sure the butter is bubblin’ hot and that you add it slowly. The other major point is that you will get the best results in a small bowl food processor.
