Just saw this amazing sounding recipe on Whole Foods’ blog thanks to a tweet I can’t vouch for it personally, but it sure sounds amazing. Besides, when has WF steered us wrong?!
This is a perfect treat for Cinco de Mayo -dip tortilla chips or raw veggies into this creamy sauce or use it as you would salsa, spooning it over roast meat or fish.
