    Sheri-BDB's Note:

    This is a red sauce that I found on some website and slightly made adjustments. It's an excellent sauce for tamales, enchiladas and Mexican chicken casseroles.

      I was looking for a sauce for tamales and came upon this one. Our family LOVED it. I did add more jalapeno and cayenne, but we like spicy food. It's such a versatile sauce; I too will be making this again -- doubling it -- so I can have it handy in the freezer. It's so good and fresh-tasting. Thanks, Sheri.

      I made this today for a tortilla casserole.It is awesome!It tastes even better than it looks on paper.I didnt have any jalapenos,so I used sambal chili sauce.I also used half honey/half sugar,doubled garlic and,added a carrot which gave it a nice color.I will use this recipe often now that i found it.It is better than anything you could find in a store and is so quick to prepare!
