This Hot Jezebel Dipping Sauce is exactly that. HOT! If you like it hot, then this recipe is for you!
It's unclear where this sauce comes from or how it got the name "Jezebel" but it appears it originated in the South in the 1950s. Whatever its origins, this is one great dipping sauce.
Traditionally Jezebel Sauce is poured over softened cream cheese and served with crackers but you can also use it as a sipping sauce for chicken tenders or chicken wings.
💭 Recipe Tip
While you can pretty much use any brand of cream cheese, I highly recommend you use Philadelphia brand cream cheese. You will taste the difference.
While I list 3 tablespoons of prepared horseradish in the recipe card, I highly recommend you start with 2 tablespoons and do a taste test. Add the other tablespoon of horseradish if you still want more heat.
Another variation you can make to this recipe is using mustard powder instead of the Dijon mustard. I recommend starting with 1 teaspoon and going from there until you find your desired taste.
