I fell in love with the sauce years ago when I was pregnant with one of my five kiddos. Hmmm. Which one was it? I think it was #4? Yeah, let’s go with that.
I used to send my husband on Taco Bell runs to get me Steak Quesadillas with Baja Sauce and an Apple Empanada for dessert. Man, that would really hit the spot. Unfortunately, that “spot” is now all over my hips and thighs.
But I digress.
I went in search of a copycat recipe for it and have been really pleased with this version.
And, of course, a little Cholula sprinkled on top is always good!

I tried this recipe and we loved it! My son was requesting for me to make quesadillas for supper. I made the sauce the night before so it had time for the seasonings to really set in. It was great! Thanks for the recipe!
