    Wow, great sauce. DH used it for a dip with scoops and I'm going to make chimichangas today to use it again. Loved how easy it was and how the flavors jump out.

    I'd give this 10 stars if I could. As close to Taco Bell Sauce as you can get. I followed the recipe exactly.

    This sauce is delicious. I'm not sure how taco bell sauce tastes exactly but the first thing I thought of when I tasted your sauce was "This would be AWESOME on chicken Tacos or Burritos!". I thinned it out a little with an additional 2-3 tbsp of water and added a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. The flavors were surprisingly complex. The chili powder and smokey cumin come out first and then you can really taste the citrus. Nice job! *Made for PAC Spring 2010*
