Southwest Sauce

Use my Southwest Sauce recipe in everything from turkey avocado wraps to grilled chicken sandwiches. You can also use it as a topping for nachos, or drizzle it over tortilla soup or enchiladas. It’s also great served as a drizzle on crisp French fries!

Be sure to let the flavors meld in the refrigerator overnight for best results. This Southwest Sauce recipe keeps for about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
