Made this as a side dish for Mexican meatballs (#58471)because my oldest won't do rice. Even she liked it!

We liked the sauce and thought it was very clever of the chef. However, we did not really care for it on pasta, even though we are pasta lovers. I'll definitely make the sauce again but I'll use it on nachos or something similar.
