My girlfriend swears that her fiance asked her to marry him because of this sauce. Maybe you will have similar results, maybe not, but I guarantee that you will find this sauce unbelievably tasty!
We use it for everything – as a dip, a dressing, a pasta sauce, etc. But our favorite way to use it is as a sauce for salad rolls – use a lettuce wrapper, and load up the ripe avocado, sliced red peppers, julienned carrots, sundried tomatoes, red onion, sprouts, etc., then slather on a generous portion of this sauce, roll it all up and serve.
This sauce keeps well for about a week, so you can easily double or triple the recipe if you find you like it.
This recipe originally called for tequila to be mixed with the lime-juice, but it is just as good without. It’s a good dish to serve at a party, and kids seem to like it too.
For the chili powder, I left the amount blank, because it really depends on the type you are using and your personal “spicy” preference. I use chipotle chili powder (not technically raw), and usually put around 1/2 tsp.
