I love sauces, and marinades, and rubs of all sorts. I also love, love, love me some hot sauces! I was trying to recreate a sauce similar to the Asian Chili Garlic Sauce. I diverted into the lime seasoning of Tejin, it’s one of favorite premixed seasonings, and voila. This happened. Lol. It is not what I had set out to make at all. Things really turn out as I has inteneded in the kitchen. That's alot of the fun of cooking for me. I sure am glad they don’t always turn out as planned or I wouldn’t have some of my most favorites dishes to this day.

This is really really good mixed with ketchup and French fries. It's nice as a rub/marinade for chicken, as well. I’ve even used it on tacos to add a kick of flavor. It’s not as spicy as I would have liked. It does have a nice nice punch in the after taste, though.

I would love to hear your thoughts. It’s a staple in my fridge, now. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!
