A wonderful cheese sauce with a kick. Great on seafood or chicken enchiladas. I was lucky to be able to adopt this recipe..and as it's one of my favourites I'm really happy about that..I like to mix this with plain steamed rice. It's delicious!

Fabulous sauce! I made it to go over my Chimichangas and it was wonderful,and so creamy! I will also use it, as specified, for an enchilada topping,and many other uses that I can imagine it used for too. Thanks Mean

Awesome! Delicious!! I poured this over penne pasta and it was so great. The only thing I did differently was I didn't add the cumin because I didn't have it, I used half and half instead of heavy cream, and I used fat free cream cheese.
