We eat a lot of chicken, and I wanted something different. So, I came up with this sauce to put on my spicy chicken, and it took the taste of the chicken to a whole new level. My husband loved it. I will be using it on other meats too.

This sauce is sooo good. It was really yummy on chicken, but I bet it would be great with a quesadilla or chips. The spices were just right for me. If it's too spicy for you, just adjust to suit your taste buds!
