the yellow pepper (guerro) added a nice spice to the sauce, however the seaseame seeds be very carefull in warming them, I reccomend 2 min I a found out the seeds are what set the sauce a success or failure,so I reccomend 2 min max so that the oils in seeds are released... no roasting required!!.. was not a big hit in my Mexican family.... something is missing its to grainy for my taste.

This is not a bad recipe but it just didn't knock our socks off. The color is not very appetizing. With some tinkering, it might be a decent filling for a burrito.
