I have been wanting to share this recipe with ya’ll for a long time now, and I’m super excited to be doing it today.  This is my number 1 favorite condiment – and it’s one that you just can’t go and buy in the grocery store.

I love it on so many things – from dipping my chips in to pouring on any Mexican inspired dish.   My favorite thing to serve it alongside are my Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls though!

It’s seriously fantastic, and I always have it in my fridge.  It lasts about 1-2 weeks – depending on how fresh the ingredients are that you add, and it just gets better the more that it sits.

All you do is mix all your ingredients in a food processor or blender, and puree until smooth.  How do you like that for ease of preparation?!

Once it’s all combined & smooth – then transfer it to a jar with a seal, or a similar container.  Store it in the fridge.  Try it on any kind of food with even the slightest Mexican flavors to it, or just dunk your chips in it.
