My husband and I are OBSESSED with Taco Bell jalapeno sauce, so we were skeptical that this would not match up. Wrong- it is absolutely fabulous!!! It is just as good made with light mayo, too. It is also great to liven up a regular old grilled cheese, and on chicken. Awesome, awesome recipe!
This did taste exactly like the taco bell sauce in the quesadilla. I wish I read the reviews prior to making it.
This is a new staple at my house!!!I got a quesadilla maker for xmas and couldnt wait to try this out-does taste just like taco bells.I scaled the recipe to make a full cups worth and everyone was complaining that their wasnt gonna be any leftover.SUPEB- a must try!!!
really really good! left out the jalapenos, added cayenne pepper sauce and lime juice. also mixed in sour cream with the mayo. spread it on quesdaillas before toasting, then dipped them in it afterwards!! sooooo yummy
I used this in place of sour cream with my quesadillas. I was surprised that it was not as flavorful as I thought it would be, but not bad. I think I'll stick with sour cream next time, though!
This spread REALLY kicked my quesadillas up a notch. A little bit goes a long way, but I quadrupled the recipe to make a bunch. Might be good on a burger or chicken sandwich too!
Fantastic! I doubled the peppers (used fresh jalapeno/habenero/green pepper mix) and used green pepper juice instead. Really spicy like we love it - very versatile sauce. Try dipping corn on the cob in it, with some fresh lime juice...yum!
I have made chicken quesadillas several times for my family. I tried this addition tonight for the first time and everyone said they were the best I have ever made. I put a thin layer on each tortilla and layered premade tyson fajita chicken strips with colby/jack cheese. I have an electric quesadilla maker and they turned out restaurant quality. quick easy and delish. thank you for the recipe
