Nuno Espirito Santo’s side trailed twice in north London before Jimenez latched on to Diogo Jota’s bypass to finish with his left foot.
Spurs first led when Steven Bergwijn poked in and then from Serge Aurier’s curling effort before the break.
But Matt Doherty and Jota combined to bring Wolves level on each occasions.
Jota’s ball was fired home with the aid of Doherty after Spurs defender Japhet Tanganga failed to clear and then Jota tapped in from close range following Doherty’s low cross.
Dele Alli had missed the chance to send Tottenham into a 3-1 lead moments before when he headed wide while unmarked inside the box.
The win sends Wolves sixth in the table and three points at the back of fourth-placed Chelsea.
