Easy to make, loved the creaminess and great flavor

This was so very good. I had a little left over and put it on a breakfast burrito and it was even good on that. I will be making it a lot.

I loved this simple sauce. I did replace the sour cream with nonfat plain greek yogurt giving it a healthier twist... still a nice sauce for not only shrimp but grilled tuna!!

Delicious!!! "LadyD"

Good sauce , I append 1/4 teaspoon puréed garlic, and two shakes of tiger seasoning , great on grilled fish tacos with slaw

Delicious! Left out the ancho chili pepper. It was a little salty - I may have added a tsp of Old Bay.
