it tastes and smells just like Taco Bells baja sauce! I left out the bell pepper and added a little extra jalapenos. I can't live with out it now.

Pretty close to Taco Bell's Baja Sauce. VERY simple. I would make this again but I think I might try this with half sour cream next time and increase the garlic powder and cumin. Heat-wise, it's perfect.



This is an amazing tasting sauce, I cant get enough of it. Feel free to throw in an extra jalepeno if you like a little spice. Also they don't mention it in the recipe, but when you chop up the bell pepper, jalepeno and onion, it actually produces enough to make more than 2 recipes worth. So if you want, double up on the mayo/vinegar/spices since you will have enough of the other mixture for more than twice as much.
