Zaxby's Chicken Fingers Dipping Sauce


Zax sauce is spicy, creamy, and really good with fried chicken, chicken fingers, and sandwiches. It's a great alternative to traditional BBQ sauce. If you are a fan of Zaxby's Zax sauce, this copycat recipe is for you! I like to add a full teaspoon of black pepper but you can add as much as you like.
