    Hi! My boyfriend and I LOVE your recipes! Last night, we used the sauce for the Creamy Chick’n Cajun Pasta and made scalloped potatoes layered with sauteed: Boca Ground Beef, onions, red bell peppers, carrots, peas, and yellow squash. It was so yummy and the sauce made it soooo CREAMY! Thanks!

    Definitely my go to but I substitute the spices with Tajin. I highly recommend you try it if you like a little spice and lime flavor.
