This kicked up cilantro-lime cream sauce makes EVERYTHING taste great! It gets a boost of flavor from our homemade fajita seasoning and is perfect on salmon, chicken, veggies or this amazing South of the Border Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe and cilantro-lime rice from our fantastic Family Favorites Menu Plans. It boasts a wonderful combination of cool and spicy you are going to love.
To achieve the best flavor, you’ll want to make the cilantro lime sauce the night before you need it to give the flavors a chance to blend. Planning ahead also saves time on those busy nights you need to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible.
