"Being on a salt reduced diet has me try a lot of home made spices and sauces. This one was pretty good. I used a homemade turkey broth instead of chicken, no salt in it. Not to spicy - I cut the cayenne in half at first but after tasting it added the rest. A keeper."

Very nice recipe & easy to customize. Thank you for posting. If you want thicker sauce add a table spoon or 2 of tomato paste.

I used this sauce with the Chicken Enchilada Casserole recipe and it was very good. I didn't do the extra in the preparation, only the sauce.
