I made this to serve with fajitas for lunch. It has a good flavor, but I really don't think of this as "salsa", this is more of "sauce". It is extremely quick and easy to put together, and I probably will look for other recipes to use this with. Maybe I will try it as for simmering a beef steak in. Thank you for a very nice recipe. (Made for PRMR tag).

Loved this! I cheated and used rehydrated minced onion and knorr cilantro cubes. I doubled the recipe and used it on tacos and dipping chips in. You must use the El Pato brand to appreciate the flavor. Thanks Teresa!

Simple, with a little heat. What I like most about this is the consistency. It is very smooth and works great as taco sauce.
