“This sauce is AMAZING! Not only is great as a sauce over chicken or enchiladas, its great as a dip for chips too! Amazingly to me it tastes like guacamole even though there is no avocado. I put some serving suggestions at end of recipe that i think would be great too. You have to try it and know that served hot or cold it will be a great hit. Enjoy!”
