    Zetty66's Note:

    My cousin shared this recipe with me after we had the sauce at a restaurant on Coronado Island. I've never made it at home, but know I enjoyed it at the restaurant. My cousin's advice: don't count the calories in this!!!!!

      Used this recipe for sauce on my chicken enchiladas and on some veggie mushroom was great for both! I was a little worried it would be too spicy for me, but the cheese balanced out the jalapenos well. It was excellent and I will be using it often.

      Can you say, simply outstanding?! I put this sauce on my enchiladas and they were to die for. I couldn't believe how they tasted better than the restaurants. Only alteration I did was to put a teaspoon of sugar in it. This recipe does not disappoint!
