"I got this recipe from a restaurant in California 10 years ago. It's been a staple in my refrigerator ever since. It's excellent with rotisserie chicken. You can lower the calories if you stream in olive oil in replace of the mayo."

This tastes very similar to an aji sauce I find at a local Peruvian restaurant. The first time I made this was about a month ago, and I've been hooked ever since! It's great on chicken, rice, ...

AWSOME recipe ! Added about 1/8 cup of Olive oil instead of the entire 1/4 cup mayo. Taste was great!
