      Ray...Ray...Ray...what a surprise of a sauce! I honestly was skeptical of a sauce made with evaporated milk and jalapenos, but my gosh, this was good. Do people still use the word "scarf" as in "he scarfed" or "she scarfed" it down? Well, we ALL "scarfed" this one down.

      What a delicious recipe! I was looking for something to use up the jalapenos I had in my fridge, and this was the perfect dish!
      I didn't have evaporated milk so I used double the amount (1/2 cup) of regular milk. I had to cook it a bit longer for it to thicken but the taste was still lovely. I also added one clove of garlic to and a dash of cumin to the sauce while it cooked. I bet it would be yummy with shrimp too!

      Very tasty and came together quickly when the steak was pan-fried. I think that a little bit of garlic and maybe sun-dried tomatoes would be delicious, though, perhaps, not necessarily very 'Costa Rican'!
