I don't want to call this a copycat recipe since the restaurant where I got this, Miguel's in San Diego, actually gives out the recipe because it's so popular. They serve it warm with chips as an alternative to salsa. I'm sure there are many other uses for this sauce, such as over enchiladas. You may want to add extra jalapenos if the spice isn't hot enough for you.
