    Jeff's Girl Way Out West's Note:

    We were served this at a dinner party. The host obtained the recipe from a restaurant I believe is called "Miguel's Cocina". This luscious sauce is perfect as a dip for fresh veggies, tortilla chips or better yet, potato chips! It's also an irresistible topping for baked potatoes. Because it's simply a flavored, upscale white sauce, the sky's the limit here! For chicken base, I use the "paste" type soup base, and also add a pinch of salt to the roux. Adjust the jalapenos and juice to taste.

      I was a regular patron of Miguel's on Shelter Island in San Diego. This is a great dip! I had lost my Recipe Card from Miguel's (they give away the recipe on little cards). So thank you very much for posting this recipe. My family all make this dip and we have found that if you use a double boiler you can make it without any chance of scalding the dip. Thanks again for posting this recipe.

      Very tasty, but pretty mild - I added 4 Tbsp jalapenos and it just got there (will add more next time). Thanks for posting.
