This was great! I used Tilapia and I did not have chives so I used Cilantro!! Also I flavored the fish with garlic powder and Cumin. I put the x-tra sauce on our mex.flavored vegies. This is a keeper. The sauce coulp be used on many foods. Thanks for the Recipie********

YUM! I made a few modifications: Low-fat sour cream Jalapeños from a jar Layer of fresh sliced avocado I added some sauteed spinach with garlic and plain steamed cauliflower on the side. I'll definitely make this again!

I really liked the flavor of the sauce. I used fat free sour cream and it gave it a grainy texture. Next time i make this....and there will be a next time, I will use regular sour cream. I also added a little garlic and it just made it that much better.
