Mmmm! Delicious! No reason to spend the extra money on store-bought! This one's a winner! I did alter a few things:

I made a double batch (won't last long in my house!),

only did about 1/2 cup tahini for the entire double batch,

did 2 jalapenos per batch (because we like it hot!),

mixed in a sprinkling of cumin,

roasted my garlic and included a whole head of it,

did mostly lime juice with a little bit of lemon...

and didn't do any zest (we didn't have the fruits, so I just used the juice out of the bottles.).

I think it turned out great! Definitely has some kick, which is good!
