» Recipes: The Food that Makes us Floridians!

I am going to start off by saying that I have subscribed to Bon Appetit for about 2 years now, and I have never made any BA recipe that wasn't down-right delicious.  My daughter loves to experiment with new recipes, so the past weekend when we had family in town, we decided to make this "special sauce". 


Special is an understatement.


It was so delicious that we were fantisizing about other food to put it on while we were eating; fish tacos, tater tots, chicken wings, shrimp.  Use it as a salad dressing.  Or a chip/veggie dip, or make cole slaw with it.  We were licking it off our fingers; using hamburger buns to soak up the last little remnants of it off our plates.   Yes, it is THAT good.   You can turn up the heat a little by adding one of the chipotles from the can of chipotles in adobo.  


My only other advice is to make a double batch!
