Southwest Sauce for Poppers Ala Arby's

READY IN: 24hrs 5mins
Recipe by Queen Dragon Mom

A variation of an existing recipe (82591). A different texture and made in an immersion blender. The blender is getting to the top of my "tools I can't live without" list. Preparation time does not include roasting the garlic.

Excellent! 5 stars doesn't begin to describe how wonderful this sauce is - it has a smoothness and well-rounded flavour that just bounces around your mouth before subtly slamming you with smoky heat! We had this with all over some juicy rib-eye steaks and DH had to be restrained from pouring the sauce straight into his mouth!
