Hello, my name is Jessica and I am obsessed with SAUCE! Dippings sauce, sauces to drizzle, sauces that smother, envelope and raise the bar. Jalapeno Pineapple Sauce is one of my favorites.
Jalapeno Pineapple Sauce is a cool and spicy dipping sauce recipe. Perfect for crab rangoons, onion rings, grilled vegetables and more!
It is verstile and has the perfect mix of cool and creamy with sweet and spicy. All of my favorites.
Jalapeno Pineapple Sauce was originally made for my Crab Rangoons. If you haven’t seen them, check them out. Real jumbo lump crab meat with cream cheese and avocado. No “crab flavored” dip here!
We had some leftovers and wanted to use Jalapeno Pineapple Sauce with some other recipes like grilled vegetables, Italian dressing marinated chicken, onion rings, cheese curds, French fries and so much more! What a sauce!
I use a plain Greek yogurt for my sauce because I like the creamy tart aspect, but you can also use sour cream or mayonnaise, if you prefer. Any hot pepper will do.
I used jalapeno on this batch, but habanero, serrano or any other pepper will do. Make sure you remove the seeds to reduce the heat. You can also use a less mild pepper and reduce or omit the crushed red pepper flakes.
Tools for making your own Jalapeno Pineapple Sauce:
Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!
Non Powdered Latex Gloves – Say what? Non powdered latex gloves are another one of my kitchen essentials. Anytime I chop a hot pepper (jalapeno, serrano, habanero), you risk the oils permeating your skin and it BURNS! Touch anything else, God forbid your eyes, and you will be in some real pain!
Avoid all of this by throwing on some latex gloves without powder. Unless you are allergic to latex, of course. And if you don’t follow my advice and do end up with the burning skin, soak them in milk, the higher fat content the better!
