  1. I felt that it gave you a nice base to start with but i had to add more of the ingredients to make it even close to the taste.
  2. Pretty close to Taco Bell's Baja Sauce. VERY simple. I would make this again but I think I might try this with half sour cream next time and increase the garlic powder and cumin. Heat-wise, it's perfect.
