This sauce has a wonderful flavor that I can't compare to any other sauces I've tried. I served Chicken Flautas with this recipe and they went together great. I also found a scaled-down version of this recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens grilling cookbook, where they suggest using it on grilled fish or chicken, which sounds good too.
