To prepare the Spicy Hollandaise:
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and hold it very hot (butter must be heated just prior to adding it to the blender).
Combine water, chili powder, salt and Cholula sauce and bring to a boil. Do not evaporate too much—1/2 cup of liquid must be maintained.
Combine the egg yolks and lime juice in a blender and blend for 2 seconds. With the blender on, slowly add the seasoned boiling water.
Slowly add the hot, melted butter to the blending egg yolks and hot water.
Add the black pepper and adjust the salt.
Add the chopped jalapeños and chopped cilantro and blend for 3 seconds.
Hold in a double boiler over low to medium heat.
