Mexican Table Sauce

When I travelled in Mexico, sights such as this colourful beach cafe were very common, and each table usually had an unlabelled bottle of sauce on it.  Being the curious type,  I disregarded the dire warnings from my companions and tried it .... and I liked it!  

I have no idea what it's real name is, or the actual recipe - if one exists.  But this recipe I found in an old Mexican cookbook seems to be pretty close.  The original recipe called for peanut butter, but I found that almond butter - a Paleo friendly substitute - works as well. 

This is a terrific all-round sauce and is just as delicious on eggs in the morning as it is on chicken, meat or seafood later in the day.  The ingredients may seem a strange mix, but somehow they work!


-  1 cup of tomato sauce
-  1/2 cup of almond butter
-  1 teaspoon of chopped garlic
-  1 teaspoon of ground cumin
-  2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
-  1/2 cup of chicken broth
-  sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions :
  • Just put everything into your blender and blend until it's all smooth. 
  • Store in a covered bottle or container in your fridge.
  • Because this is made from fresh ingredients, if you don't use it within a few days freeze it in an ice cube tray and then take out portions as needed.

When eating at one of these ocean front cafes, it was very common to be entertained by small bands of travelling musicians - which added even more local flavour to the experience.
