Creamy Cilantro-Lime Sauce

Print Post
This creamy cilantro lime sauce will go perfect with the recipe that I will be sharing soon:  Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Chicken (Look for it next week!) And, to make a complete meal, check out last week’s super-easy cilantro-lime rice recipe and then add a simple side vegetable.

Tip: For best results, prepare the cilantro-lime sauce the night before you need it to give the flavors a chance to blend. Planning ahead will also save time on those busy nights you want to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible.
