And the simpler the better in my household. Who possibly has time to spend hours in the kitchen by the hot stove. This is why this recipe is so great. You get tasty, rich, cheesy sauce in just over ten minutes. It is perfect consistency and is wonderful for pouring over tamales but also serving with chips as a dip or drizzling over any of your favorite tex-mix dishes, like enchiladas, chimichangas and burritos.

The sauce had distinct peppery and cheesy taste thanks to the adobo sauce and melted American cheese. The cheese really aids in the creamy texture of the sauce without overpowering the rest of the flavors.

Adobo Sauce is a rich, reddish brown, earthy flavored sauce made with chipotle peppers. This sauce sininymlous with ground ancho and guajillo chiles really works in harmony with taco seasonings bringing all the delicious, traditional Mexican flavors to the table.
