This is a different flavor than what I am used to and I was hesitant to try it. But the sauce I found to be really delicious.. The spices, cloves, cumin and hungarian paprika along with the brown sugar, added a great taste to the tomato and chile mixture. Give it a try, I hope you enjoy it. Photo to follow later today. :)
