This is a delicious creamy jalapeno spread to use on quesadillas, tacos, or whatever you want. It tastes just like the one on Taco Bell's quesadillas.

My husband and I are OBSESSED with Taco Bell jalapeno sauce, so we were skeptical that this would not match up. Wrong- it is absolutely fabulous!!! It is just as good made with light mayo, too. It is also great to liven up a regular old grilled cheese, and on chicken. Awesome, awesome recipe! Read More

This did taste exactly like the taco bell sauce in the quesadilla. I wish I read the reviews prior to making it. Read More

Fantastic! I doubled the peppers (used fresh jalapeno/habenero/green pepper mix) and used green pepper juice instead. Really spicy like we love it - very versatile sauce. Try dipping corn on the cob in it with some fresh lime juice...yum! Read More

This spread REALLY kicked my quesadillas up a notch. A little bit goes a long way but I quadrupled the recipe to make a bunch. Might be good on a burger or chicken sandwich too! Read More

I have made chicken quesadillas several times for my family. I tried this addition tonight for the first time and everyone said they were the best I have ever made. I put a thin layer on each tortilla and layered premade tyson fajita chicken strips with colby/jack cheese. I have an electric quesadilla maker and they turned out restaurant quality. quick easy and delish. thank you for the recipe Read More

I used this in place of sour cream with my quesadillas. I was surprised that it was not as flavorful as I thought it would be but not bad. I think I'll stick with sour cream next time though! Read More
