This not so healthy, but oh so good, sauce is great with almost anything! Especially good with fried foods, but also works with tortilla chips (hmmmm... those are fried, too, huh?) and vegetables. It has a kick, but you could omit one of the jalapenos to tone it down.

I died and went to jalapeno heaven! Love this as a dip with chips as well as a topper to burritos and/or tacos. Thanks for giving me a fond memory of a great Mexican lunch!

Very Good and very close to what we get at the local Mexican restaurant. THANKS so much for posting this. I'm sure once I learn how to clarify butter better and make the thickener right, it'll be better than 5 stars - it's still VERY addicting! Thanks again for a keeper recipe!
